A one hour workshop on writing fiction for Young Adults, led by Megan Shepherd.
New York Times bestselling author Megan’s first novel, The Madman’s Daughter (HarperCollins, 2013), was a Kids’ Indie Next List selection from the American Booksellers Association, won the 2013 North Carolina Young Adult Book Award, and received a starred review from School Library Journal. It was followed by two more books in the series, Her Dark Curiosity and A Cold Legacy. Megan’s second young adult series, The Cage (HarperCollins, 2015), is a New York Times bestselling title, and is followed by The Hunt and The Gauntlet. Her next young adult series, Grim Lovelies (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018) is forthcoming.
Megan’s debut middle grade title, The Secret Horses of Briar Hill (Random House, 2016), received starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Shelf Awareness. Her shorter works include the stories “Hide-and-Seek” in the young adult horror anthology Slasher Girls and Monster Boys (Penguin, 2015) and “Lady Firebrand” in the young adult historical fiction anthology The Radical Element (Candlewick, 2018).
