Sharon Draper is one of the young adult authors we at YARN most wanted to talk to this year, and we tracked her down—in Egypt!
Woot! We did it again 😉
The SCBWI Magazine Merit awards for 2106 are out, and YARN has again swept top awards in the YA fiction/nonfiction category.
Wow, this is one HARD post to write.

YARN is honored to have the one and only Francisco Stork back in the Essays section, with a reply to his earlier essay “Depressed Not Depressing,” about the process of writing the novel that became “The Memory of Light.” This may sound like a craft essay just for writers, but it’s not–it’s about the human condition, juts like all of Francisco’s memorable writing.
Please join us in congratulating the winner and runners-up in our #EnchantedYARN poetry contest!
The winners Margarita Engle chose include a YARN Alum, a published poet, and a writer just sending out her first novel.
Two poems by teen writer, Kathryn Hasson.
