Writing for the Love of It

How do authors know where to start and end their stories? If you’re writing a novel based on your own experience, do you have to do research? What’s the difference between “Young Adult” and “Adult” fiction? Join me for an in-depth conversation with three wonderful writers: Malinda Lo, author of the National Book Award winner Last Night at the Telegraph ClubYang Huang, Juniper Prize-winning author of My Good Son, and multiple Lambda nominee Lucy Jane Bledsoe, whose forthcoming No Stopping Us Now fictionalizes her adventures as a teen demanding (and winning) school sports programs for girls in Portland.

It’s Valentine’s Day, and these authors say every book is ultimately about love.
