Using the Young Adult Author Resource Pages

Writers are readers. The purpose of the Young Adult Author Resource Pages is to bring young writers closer to their favorite authors. Through social media and recorded interviews many authors offer fabulous advice on writing that are useful for writers of all ages. If you are a teacher, you can use the interviews in your classroom in the context of your creative writing curriculum.

If the author is one of your favorites and you would like to share something about why you like that author's books, please leave a comment.
