The Young Adult (YA) market is huge, diverse, constantly evolving, challenging and rewarding. If you’d like to try your hand with YA writing and publishing, wonder what books are shaping young minds, or just want a wider view of the contemporary book market, come hear Amanda Goodwin give facts, tips, and observations on the big business of writing for young people.
Amanda Goodwin, Community Business Development Manager for Barnes & Noble. Amanda’s bookselling career with Barnes & Noble started in 2006 with a holiday hire, suggested by a high school teacher.

The Knoxville Writers’ Guild requests a $2 donation at the door. This helps defray our rent for meeting space and entitles you to drawings for door prizes (when we have them).
