We're setting land-speed records for Fall Conference registration, with more than 50 writers signed up already.

In fact, as of today, the Fiction Master Class with Angela Davis-Gardner has more applicants than spaces in the class.

If you applied for this Master Class, but have not yet sent your required materials, PLEASE DO SO ASAP.

We will close registration for this Master Class as soon as we have gone through all the submitted materials, and chosen the first fourteen qualified applicants. If your materials don't arrive in time, you may miss your chance.

We still have plenty of room in our other classes, workshops, and special sessions. Register today, and we'll look forward to seeing you at the 2016 Fall Conference.

RALEIGH—At the North Carolina Writers' Network 2016 Fall Conference, November 4-6 in Raleigh, award-winning author Jen McConnel will teach the class, "Young Adult/New Adult: What’s the Big Deal?"

YA and NA are thriving genres. But what, exactly, is the difference? We'll discuss what separates YA from NA, explore the areas where they are closely related, and practice writing both.

Jen McConnel is an award-winning author. She writes Young Adult and New Adult fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. When she isn’t writing, she can be found on her yoga mat, teaching, or wandering off on another adventure. She grew up in mid-Michigan, attending Western Michigan University, and now lives with her family in North Carolina. She holds a MS in Library Science from Clarion University of Pennsylvania, and she is currently working on her MA in Children’s Literature at Hollins University.

Registration for the North Carolina Writers' Network 2016 Fall Conference is open.

We asked Jen, “What is one piece of advice that you would give to your younger writer self?”

"Don't stop. Taking breaks isn't the same thing as quitting, and you'll need breaks to stay sane on this creative path, but avoid the temptation to actually stop and walk away. The stories aren't done with you yet."
