What is YA and who reads it? What are the "tricks" of writing for young adults? How can I improve my own writing? Traditional publishing or self-publishing?


Speaker: Beck McDowell, author of This is Not a Drill

Beck McDowell, Huntsville young adult author, is a former middle and high school AP English teacher. Her novel THIS IS NOT A DRILL was published by Penguin on 10/25/12, and she also wrote LAST BUS OUT. She and her students built notrequiredreading.com to help teens find good books and her blog can be found at www.beckmcdowell.com

Ms McDowell was recently in the news with her generous donation in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy.
