While young adult (YA) fiction is written for readers between the ages of 12 to 18, it reaches a much broader audience; approximately half of readers are adults. These four writers not only help their readers escape into imagined worlds, they also traverse the big issues that young people face today: mental health, suicide and self-harm, date rape, abuse of power, terrorism, political corruption, the treatment of perceived ‘others’ and environmental degradation—but with a big dose of love, compassion, humour and generosity. As well as learning how they entertain and captivate their readers, come along to this session to find out how all four writers inspire their readers to use their own voices.
