Are you interested in writing for Young Adults, but not sure where to start? Or maybe you’re already writing YA, but want to take your writing one step further? Perhaps you’re wondering whether there are any limits to writing in the genre – how dark is too dark for YA?
At this Writers’ Night, we’ll be joined by Yasmin Rahman, author of All The Things We Never Said (2019), who will be sharing her writing journey and what drew her to YA. We’ll be discussing her experience writing novels and covering important themes in a captivating way, as well as sharing practical tips for taking your work from word document to bookshop shelves.
Whether you’re just starting to imagine a cast of characters, or busy perfecting your plot, this Writers’ Night will cover and give you an insight to the world of YA, no matter where you are on your writing journey.
There will also be a showcase of local writers (do get in touch if you’d like to share your work!) and a creative exercise to make sure you leave the evening raring to write.
Weston Writers’ Nights create supportive spaces for budding writers of all ages and abilities to come together and learn more about the exciting, sometimes bewildering world of publishing, fiction and writing. We’re passionate about good stories, connecting people and most importantly, empowering writers.
Tickets are now available online. We have a number of free tickets available for those who may not otherwise be able to attend – get in touch for more details.
