Monthly meeting NEXT WEDNESDAY!

Next Wednesday, prepare for an emotional roller-coaster. You will be taken to the heights of lust, er, LOVE, and to its combative opposite, WAR. Bring Kleenex, ice water, and some chocolate. It's going to get crazy up in here!

Amber J. Keyser!

Amber J. Keyser (THE V WORD, THE WAY BACK FROM BROKEN) and Fonda Lee (ZEROBOXER) will represent both extremes and how to best utilize them in your YA characters' lives. For more about Amber, click here.

Fonda Lee!

Fonda Lee writes science fiction and fantasy for teens and adults. She is an avid martial artist with black belts in karate and kung fu, and goes mad for smart action movies (think The Matrix, Inception, and Minority Report). Fonda’s the Willamette Writers Up and Coming Award winner for 2015 and her debut YA sci-fi action novel, Zeroboxer, is a Jr. Library Guild Selection, an Oregon Book Award finalist, and has been named to the ALA’s Top 10 Picks for Reluctant Readers, the CCBC Choices List, and VOYA’s annual list of the Best Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. Fonda believes that phenomenal action writing is an often overlooked aspect of strong writing, and aims to share with you principles, examples, and tactics for making your readers' hearts pound with adrenaline.

We HEART these writers, and we HEART you, too! Come and rage and hug and weep and just let your emotions spill. It's okay. It's all good. You'll be among friends.
