If you would like to read up on writing for young adults before our September 18, 2021 Master Class with Tessa Emily Hall here are a few helpful website.

A suggestion for newer writers – create a file in your bookmarks (favorites) for Writing YA. Save these links to that file and you’ll always be ready to learn or review this great information.

We need your help! If you have other favorite websites that you use when writing for young adults do us a favor, please, and leave the link or address in the comments below. Thanks!
