Have a Great August!

August itinerary for YARN editors.

Since we know you’ve come to depend on your regular doses of YA from YARN, we thought it was only polite to let you know that we’re taking a little break in August.  Only a break from publishing new material, mind you.  We’re still reading and hatching new plans–in fact, in September, we’ll be back with gusto.

We’ll announce and publish the Fan-Poetry Contest Winner, and we’ll be back with some great new YA, including new essays, fiction, and poetry by writers you know and some we’ve discovered just for your reading pleasure.  If you happen to be a teacher, we’ll have something special for you as well: lesson plans designed by the teacher-editors here at YARN!

But we’re leaving you with a few cool treats:  an interview with Malinda Lo, author of “Ash,” and a short story by Emily Deibel called “In the Spotlight.”

So don’t despair if YARN’s Facebook, Twitter, RSS, and email subscriptions are a little quiet for a few weeks, during these dog days of summer.  Use the time to catch up on your YARN–maybe you missed our Meg Cabot interview, or never had a chance to read Alisa Libby’s essay, or comment on Lourdes’s blog.  And if you don’t know what novel to read next, check out our summer reading list, compliments of you, our awesome YARN readers!

We also hope you’ll use August to polish up that submission you’ve been meaning to send us.

What’s your YARN?

See you in September!
