Writing Adolescent Fiction

Welcome to the textbook on writing adolescent fiction. Adolescent fiction is a personal, identifiable and casual genre. When they have entered their teen years, many boys and girls alike try their hands at writing it. Sometimes they will decide a few years later that they have written utter garbage and throw their stories into the trash (or the Recycle Bin on their computers). Some end up writing best-selling adolescent novels as adults.

Whether you are interested in writing novels that will be read by millions or just writing stories you want to share with a few friends, this textbook is for you.

Much of this advice will be specific to the genre of adolescent fiction, although some parts of it are useful to writers anywhere.
