and then i am going to perform violence on them the likes of which cannot be printed in YA novels
The ashy particles began to thicken and reform my body, and a scream forced its way out of my burning lungs. Did putting on Dr. Grim’s suit sweep me up the chimney the same way I had swept down it, and to this place of constant charred snow under a pale gray sun? The ashes gave way beneath my feet…
Quite envious of the workshopping the AP Lit and Creative Writing classes did. Learning about the publishing industry from the writer’s perspective is useful and was very interesting, but I would have preferred to work on my craft, because that’s the prerequisite to publishing anything.
I hope you return next year! By then I’ll have picked up your book, though I was hesitant, because it’s slightly out of genre for me, until I heard that you actually have some queer representation in there? I wish you would have mentioned it in your presentation to my class, but this /was/ small town NC, I guess. But I’m very glad to hear that it’s there! That’s something I’ve needed in YA lit and have pretty much never found. So fingers are crossed that it is positive representation! Because that’s even rarer.
