Sydney Writers’ Festival 2018 presents
BURN THE BURN BOOK: REAL GIRLS IN YA
What does it mean to be a ‘real’ girl? Four celebrated Young Adult writers join forces to reflect on writing truthfully about the experiences of teenage girls – from friendships to frenemies to first loves.
Don’t miss Alicia Tuckerman, Rebecca Lim, Jenna Guillaume and Tara Eglington in conversation with Youth Curator Kellie Phan. They talk about how to write believable female protagonists without resorting to simplistic stereotypes and how they’ve each portrayed the joys, cruelties and triumphs of the teenage experience in their own work.
Dates & Times:
Saturday 5 May 2018 at 11:30am
Programmed in association with SWF Youth Curators. Supported by the City of Parramatta and the Department of Family and Community Services.
