is a resource for anyone interested in YA — the label given to the literature, film, television, and other media texts concerning and marketed to adolescents. The network exists to promote YA, in all its forms, while also supporting those researching, writing, or simply enjoying it.
While still in our infancy, there are grand plans: a multi-day international conference aimed at uniting all fronts of YA, a journal dedicated to YA as a distinct field, and a #YALMCSharedRead (coming soon!) are just a few.
On the blog, you’ll find book reviews, conference notices, YA news, and the occasional “think piece,” something to get us all, well, thinking.
One of our most fundamental aims is to connect people, as such, we are also creating a YA directory, one that we believe will become a valuable resource for anyone interested in YA.
If you have any YA content you’d like to share
or any events you’d like us to promote,
