YA Avengers: Who they are and why they are awesome.


When I think of The Avengers, I think of the TV series from the Sixties, but these avengers focus on the Young Adult genre. They save the world, one word at a time.

In keeping with their superhero theme, let's start with their mission: Helping YOU get published. 
The YAvengers blog follows Loki’s journey to getting his YA novel Growing Pains and World Domination published, beginning when he admits to needing the help of the Avengers. It is our mission to provide him and by extension, you, with our best writing and publishing tips, while also giving away ARCs, recommending books, doing Truth or Dare Fridays, and other randomness along the way. 

The bloggers all have aliases such as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Phil Coulson, and... Loki.

They offer a Twitter Chat, the most recent being this last Friday from 7-8pm Pacific time. 

According to the Update, 'The #YAvengers Twitter Chat went extremely well! Natasha and I were present to ask questions and discuss Genre in YA Literature, as well as answer general writing questions. Those who came were insightful and inquisitive. Thank you to those who participated! We would love to have another next month on the topic of STORY STRUCTURE to go along with the Team's posts for February. Keep your eyes on this blog for the day and time'.

They are open to suggestions for chat topics. So do you want in on the Twitter Chat? Are you a YA writer who wants to get published? Click here:
