The YA Studies Association is a place for anyone interested in YA — initially, the shorthand label for a field of literature ‘for’ 12 to 18-year-olds, though now including a variety of cultural products and an audience both younger and older. The network exists to promote YA, in all its forms, while also supporting those researching, writing, or simply enjoying it.
On the blog, you’ll find book reviews, conference notices, YA news, and the occasional “think piece” on YA.
One of our most fundamental aims is to connect people. As such, we are also creating a YA directory. If you’d like to be added, do get in touch. Equally, if you have any YA content — book release, conference, event — you’d like us to promote! We can be reached on Twitter or at firstname.lastname@example.org
