What is “Young-Adult” fiction?
It is, for the purposes of this competition, fiction that is aimed at readers aged 14 and over. There is no upper age recommendation because one is never too old to enjoy good fiction and many of us older readers are hooked on Y-A Fiction. There are many examples of recent successful Y-A fiction – The Hunger Games, The Book Thief, Harry Potter, The Fault in our Stars, Twilight . . .
Submit the first chapter or 5,000 words.
