The Northern YA Lit Fest

The Northern YA Literature Festival

Hi, readers!

I've got something that's really quite exciting to talk about today. 

That is the first Northern YA Literature Festival, and it will be in Preston on the 24th March 2018, and I'll be there to cover the event as a blogger! 

It's being hosted by the University of Central Lancashire BA in Publishing, working with Waterstones Preston and Lancashire Libraries.

Here's the essential information:

Just look at that line up! 😍

Nine great authors, two panels on two fantastic subjects and a conversation with mega-star Holly Black, all in a one-day event! Also, it's free to get in, you just need to register for your tickets in advance. There'll be signings and book stalls and bookish freebies too.

I'll be tweeting about it during the day and blogging about it when I get home, but the most exciting thing for me is that I've been given the opportunity to do Q&A sessions with two of the featured authors! So subscribe to my blog and follow me on Twitter to make sure you don't miss hearing more from Danny Weston and Anna Day. Let me know if there's anything you'd really like me to ask them too.

All the other Northern Bloggers who are there will also be doing pieces on the event and talking to other authors, so I'll be sure to include links to them in my round-up piece.

You can register for your tickets now at EventBrite and follow the event on twitter at @NYALitFest.

Let me know if you are going to be there, and be sure to introduce yourself on the day.

This is going to be so much fun!
