S8E3 – The Young Adult Genre

Genres can be tricky things for new authors. The genre often determines the audience, writing style, and even basic themes contained in the book. Many new authors ask in forums across the internet which genre is best for their book. This series is dedicated to those authors, in hopes of answering those questions. Each episode will break down a different genre, from the expected word count to the sentence structure.

Not only is Young Adult fiction one of the most varied genres out there, it is one of the most widely read. There are a lot of things to consider when venturing out into the world of writing YA, including the target audience and subgenres.

First aired March 9, 2020.
