YA Critique Group Anyone?

Well hello fellow YAwesome writers!


I'm part of an a-mazing on-line writers group, The Write-Brained Network, or the WB for short. And within that group, I head up the Young Adult writers subgroup, YAwesome Writers. 


So far the YA group is kicking butt and taking names (there are 31 members so far!), but I've done very little over the past few months, in regards to setting up activities for everyone. 


With that being said, and based on how popular our group is, not to mention that of the YA genre (and not just for all of us that write it, but read it as well) I'd love to open the door to all of my fellow YAwesome writers, and see if anyone out there would be interested in forming a critique group?


I know many of you are already a part of other critique groups / beta readers, so who knows what kind of response I'll receive? But...I'd love to see if there is any interest!

Exactly Why I Love YA!

I just found this great YouTube video over on Kara Lucas's blog.

I can honestly say, I so miss high school - and I'd go back in a heartbeat, if I could...and these kids are the exact reason why. Man, I love everything about the genre I write in and I guess in the end, I'm still an eighteen-year-old at heart.

Big cheers to the 2011 Senior class down at Clovis High School in Clovis, California for putting this together! And congratulations on graduation!
