Is there a difference to writing for younger readers? Do they want or need different kinds of stories? Do they have different expectations from older readers? How do you structure a series? What makes for a rewarding reading experience and how do genre expectations relate to that?
With new young adult novels published recently,Â Joe AbercrombieÂ (whose Half the World, second volume in the Shattered Sea series, is just out) andÂ Sean WilliamsÂ (whose second Twinmaker novel, Crash, came out late last year) sit down with Jonathan to discuss this and more during a fascinating conversation recorded during the Perth Writer’s Festival.
As always, our thanks to Joe and Sean, and we hope you enjoy the podcast. More next week!
