Welcome to YARWA!

Here we celebrate all things YA— readers, writers, authors, books, and conventions. We share information, hold online classes, and support each other on the road to publication and beyond. Networking opportunities and a strong, active membership make YARWA a powerful force in the young adult writing community.

Members of YARWA have been busy!

Whether it was connecting with awesome agents at the Reckless Youth Pitch Party or attending one of our other fantastic online workshops, YARWA peeps are making things happen in the publishing business. Right now, we’re working on our amazing Day of YA, which takes place the day prior to the RWA conference. It’s all YA, all day – what could be better? Maybe our second annual Rosemary contest held in March, which is just beginning to pop with all sorts of activity. Check out the basic info here!
