YA writers tackle the hard issues, from mental health and relationships to dystopian worlds. With great writing comes great responsibility, but in a brave new world, what does that responsibility look like? Is it a YA writer’s job to spread hopefulness?⁠

Join Alison Evans (Highway Bodies), Nina Kenwood (It Sounded Better in My Head) and Astrid Scholte (Four Dead Queens) for a conversation moderated by Danielle Binks (Begin, End, Begin) as they share their thoughts and experiences as published YA writers.⁠
