With the YA market becoming tighter and more competitive than ever, many authors are now looking at the fast-growing middle grade space with great interest. But there’s much more to writing a middle grade novel than just aging down your characters and taking out the kissing scenes. Award winning authors Mari Mancusi and Diana Peterfreund talk about how they made the transition from young adult novels to middle grade and what you need to know about writing, selling and marketing to the 8-12 set.

The monthly meeting will be immediately followed by an Open Critique Group for SCBWI members.
