KidsLIVE: TeenLIVE presents: NYC Teen Author Festival: Writing as a Many-Booked Thing: Looking at Series

Share

March 18, 2015
For ages 13 to 18 years
For this year’s craft panel, we’re going to have a number of authors of books in series (or duologies) to talk about the pluses and minuses of writing this way. Besides the usual questions – how much do you plot out ahead of time? how much advance world-building do you do? how do you keep track of things as you go along? – we’ll also discuss how reader reaction plays a part (or not) in the creation, and also what the appeal and drawbacks of writing a series are.
