Join the #buqoYA class (January 24 to February 28, 2015)

December 12, 2014 - - 1 Comment


Telling you now, so you can spend the next month preparing:

New online class. January 24. We’re writing YA romance. You in?

If you’ve attended #buqosteamyreads and #flirtsteamyreads before, the format will be very similar. I will be facilitating a mostly-online writing class. It will run from January 24 to February 28, 2015. Most of the lessons will be sent through email, but there will be two (optional but fun) face-to-face classes. 
This class will be sponsored by ebook retailer buqo. (Thanks, buqo!) Some details we know right now:
– Participants must write and submit an original YA romance/contemporary story (like previous classes I’ve held, there will be some required elements in each story as a challenge to each author)
– 5,000 words minimum
– English or Filipino or Taglish
– Authors retain copyright of their stories
– Finished work will be offered an ebook distribution deal on buqo
– The class is free! 
(Authors under contract with publishers must first get clearance to independently enter a distribution agreement with buqo. Thanks!)

Ready to be a published YA author? 🙂 Sign up here to join the #buqoYA list.
This is only the first of several classes planned for 2015! If this is not exactly your thing, or if the timing doesn’t work out, don’t worry, future classes might be a better fit.
