Writing For Teens

Conference Workshop

In a society obsessed with cell phones, the internet, movies, television, social networking, and video games, how do you get teens to sit down and pick up a book? And once they've picked it up, how can you keep them turning the pages? Join award winning YA author (Swim the Fly, Beat the Band, Call the Shots) and professional screenwriter (Hounded, Employee of the Month) Don Calame as he discusses his writing process, how he got his very first book published (hint: it involved the Surrey International Writers Conference), and his methods for grabbing a reader's attention and holding it all the way until the very last page.
