YA SCI FI: BRAVE NEW WORLDS
Whether it’s far flung futures, fantastical magical stories, dystopias or the
world that we live in as we engage with those stories, the way YA novels
build worlds and tackle science fiction and fantasy (and fandom) is often
complex and layered with problems. Join a dynamic group of YA authors as
they discuss how they create their worlds, the process involved in creating
nuanced characters, and what we learn about our contemporary selves as a

result.
Participants: Sarah Kuhn, Cecil Castellucci, Livia Blackburne, Catherine Linka,
Sherri L. Smith, Gretchen McNeil
