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, in addition to preparing for the Evening of YA, July 24, at the RWA national meeting in NYC, we have scheduled our third Reckless Youth Pitch Party (this one with agents) for October. The finalists in our Rosemary Contest for unpublished manuscripts have been announced. More is coming, including the YARWA Virtual Retreat in September. If this sounds good to you, join us!
