5-Day Virtual Workshop
Monday – Friday, July 27 – 31 | 2 – 3:30 p.m. EST

The Outsiders. Harry Potter. The Hate You Give. Walk in to any bookstore and you will find an exciting array of young adult fiction that covers every genre—from contemporary stories tackling social justice themes to science fiction bringing other worlds to life. If you’ve ever wanted to write a novel through the perspective of a young person, this is the workshop for you. This workshop will break down the mystery of writing young adult, from capturing the young protagonist voice to writing realistic dialogue. We will study excerpts from young adult authors and tackle writing exercises meant to generate work for the start of our novels.

Lilliam Rivera is an award-winning writer and author of the young adult novels Dealing in Dreams, The Education of Margot Sanchez, and the forthcoming novels Goldie Vance: The Hotel Whodunit (March 2020) and Never Look Back (Sept 2020). Her work has appeared in The Washington Post, The New York Times, and Elle, to name a few. Lilliam lives in Los Angeles.
