Why I like YA Highway
Such a wide range of awesome posts! Information, discussions, and advice from writers, editors, agents, and publishers (including a query series), author interviews, recommended reads, writing tips, cover reveals, and more. I love that they include ways to join in on their fun: “submit a collection of music for a mix tape/playlist, ask them YA-related questions, guest posts, Road Trip Wednesday (Answer the weekly prompt on your blog and link it in the comments, or use hashtag #roadtripwednesday on Twitter or Tumblr. (It’s helpful if you tag @yahighway in those as well!) We’ll do our best to share your answers and help you find other people playing along!) and Field Trip Friday (Use the form on their site to submit your links and giveaways below for inclusion in the weekly industry round up.)”
