If you're a YA reader, could you take a couple of minutes to fill in our survey?
We'd love to hear from anyone and everyone who reads YA. Anyone. Really. It's anonymous, so no judging (we're YA readers in our 30s...there would never be any judging).
While we do mean everyone, we are especially keen to hear from teenagers. Your voice is incredibly important to our research. You'd be helping us loads -- even if it's to fill in a survey that says "I don't read YA" (I mean, yes, you'd break our YA-loving hearts but we want, we need, to know! - so give it to us, pls).
👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 Books we've recently read and LOVED or ones we're hoping to read SOON! ❤️❤️❤️
The workshop is on on Sunday from 4 to 5pm, but we'll also be at YALC --ALL-- day Saturday and Sunday.
In the workshop, we want to get thinking about how we construct characters in our writing and about how we perceive the characters we encounter. Maybe even how we perceive each other? Where are we limited by stereotypes? What can we do to get past them?
We'll post "What We're Wearing" selfies on both days, so PLEASE say hello!!
There are so many exciting and fabulous things happening! Reading group transcripts are out for transcribing; we're at YALC on Saturday and Sunday -- hosting a character building creative writing workshop on the Sunday; we're plotting articles and longer things; and a funding proposal to turn Adolescent Identities The Pilot Study™ into a full scale research project.
As we get the website up and running, do keep following us on Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.
