You, a Bestselling Young Adult Fiction Writer?

young adult novels are today’s most exciting category of fiction

Thanks to classic YA bestsellers like The Hunger Games, Twilight and Divergent young adult fiction has exploded over the past decade.

Yet, despite its immense popularity amongst readers and movie-goers, very little has been created to help aspiring writers like you learn the intricacies of writing teenage fiction.

Until now.

Introducing the ‘Write Young Adult Fiction’ course!

A comprehensive, yet easy-to-follow online course that teaches you how to write chart-topping teenage fiction – even if you haven’t written a word since high school.

You’ll discover exactly how to generate winning YA ideas, then turn them into polished stories that captivate the hearts and minds of young adult readers.

And along the way, you’ll uncover the closely-guarded tips, tricks and techniques used by top-selling young adult writers like Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins and John Green.

Here are just a few of the vital skills you’ll master through this powerful course:


How to awaken your inner teenager and think like a teen!


How to see the world through a teenager’s eyes (most YA writers get this embarrassingly wrong!).


How to ‘kill’ your adult perspective and relate to teens, like a teenager!


How to tackle sex, drugs and violence (and get the crucial thumbs up from parents and teachers!).


How handle delicate issues like racism and homophobia.


How and when to use profanity in your stories (and how to know when you’ve overstepped the mark).


How to let your teen characters confront bullying and rejection in the real world (as well as the virtual one many teenagers live in).


How to develop an authentic teen voice.


How to make your characters make decisions like a teenager (and NOT like an adult!).


How to talk like a teen (there’s a fine balance between using their language, and using that language and looking bad doing it!).


How to spot and edit out the grown-up voice that has crept into your story.


How to create characters and stories that feel real to teenagers - even when their world often feels like another planet.


How to avoid the number one story-killing mistake that almost every novice YA writer makes.


How to write stories that teenagers identify with more intensely than adult readers do.


How to execute your YA ideas with excellence.


How to overcome S.N.I syndrome. You probably already have this - yet it virtually guarantees your YAF won’t get published.


How to draft, redraft, finesse and polish your YA manuscript to complete perfection.


How to get your YA book published (in step-by-step detail).

And so much more.

Each lesson is packed with insider intel, skill-building action points and lots of hand-picked examples. There’s never been a more comprehensive, step-by-step course created exclusively for aspiring Young Adult Fiction writers and there’s never been a better time in history to write young adult fiction!


Below are the comprehensive modules that make up the Young Adult Fiction course. Throughout the modules you will be given action points and exercises that develop your skills in each specific area as you work through the course:

Module 1: Introduction to Young Adult Fiction Module 10: Contemporary Fiction and YA Memoirs
Module 2: Finding Your YA Idea Module 11: Historical, Paranormal and Non-Fiction
Module 3: Developing Your YA Idea Module 12: Mysteries, Thrillers, Horror and Dystopian
Module 4: Writing Young Adult Character Module 13: Fantasy, Magical Realism, Science Fiction
Module 5: Writing Young Adult Setting Module 14: Writing Your First YA Draft
Module 6: Writing Young Adult Plot Module 15: Making Revisions: Thinking Big
Module 7: Writing Young Adult Structure Module 16: Making Revisions: Thinking Small
Module 8: Writing Young Adult Dialogue Module 17: Discovering Your YA Writing Community
Module 9: Writing Young Adult Voice Module 18: Getting Your YA Fiction Published

Each interactive module is packed-to-the-brim with insider intel, skill-building action points, exercises, self-assessment tests and carefully selected writing examples.

Sadly, most writers who attempt to write for this unique audience are completely out of touch with it.

Instead of connecting with teens, they alienate them.

Adults are not teenagers.
We don’t talk like teens,
act like teens,
or think like teens.

“That’s why the garbage cans of so many publishers are filled with failed YA manuscripts packed with clichés, annoying characters, and awkward attempts to relate to teens”

Master the Teenage Mind

On the other hand, through this eye-opening course you will quickly learn the way teenagers think. Their language. Their interests. Their fears. Their hopes and dreams.

Together we will navigate the sometimes treacherous, but often exciting life stage of a teenager. And we’ll uncover the issues that teens grapple with on a daily basis (the issues that most novice YA writers fail to grasp).

Then, we’ll show you precisely how to transform all this covert knowledge into words that leap off the pages and penetrate the hearts, minds and souls of teenagers with laser-like precision.

A Word of Warning:

As you progress through this course you may begin to reminisce about those carefree times of teenage rebellion, discovery and hope for the future. You’ll revisit some of those issues you remember as a teen – the thrill of your first major crush… and the devastation of rejection.

Your first love. First kiss. First heartbreak. First failures. First success. Figuring it all out, challenging authority and the trouble those raging hormones got you in!

From the very start of this packed YA writing course, we will unleash your creativity and allow your inner teenager to soar free! And by the end you will have gained an unmatched perspective into what makes this unique young audience tick so that you can work your craft with remarkable intuition.

It’s YOUR turn to join the growing legion of credible YA writers!

Writing for young adults can be an incredibly liberating, therapeutic experience (and a whole lot of fun!). You can tackle topics and themes you’d never dream of writing for an adult (perhaps even right some of those wrongs you’ve carried with you all this time?).

This is why writing young adult fiction is one of the most enjoyable and thrilling categories to work in.

But don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s easy. Of all the divisions of children’s fiction – young adult novels are possibly the most difficult.

That’s precisely why we created this jam-packed ‘Write Young Adult Fiction’ online course.

I couldn’t recommend this course more highly. I have taken other extremely expensive courses with tutors etc and this far surpasses these. The detail and amount of information that you learn is phenomenal. Tips and ideas that have helped me and inspired me. If you are thinking of taking this course, don’t hesitate. Its so worth it.

Just finished module 1 and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I like that you can watch the videos without having to listen to any narrative and they are well set out and animated. There are a lot of useful tips for ‘newbies’ to avoid them making mistakes, all-in-all an excellent resource for a novice like myself.
Anthony Manning-Stanley

A tremendous course that I was really sad to finish! I have learned so much about writing for kids thanks to this course and have so many ideas now swirling around in my head. I can’t wait to get writing! Thank you Writestorybooks for delivering such a wonderful, professional and enjoyable course. The best I have studied.
Deborah Weston

This is a really excellent course for anyone who wants to write. It’s easy to follow, well written, engaging and gives you lots of relevant information to help you plan your writing and start on a writing career. As a result of what i have learnt so far I shelved my original book and am now starting it again following the advice given in the course.
Gail Leach-Smith

I do love this course and am using this one to edit my first YA novel. I completed the rough draft right before you released it, so perfect timing!
Nancy Beaule

A wonderful course about writing YA books
This is a wonderful course about how YA books differ from regular fiction, what to avoid, what to emphasize, all kinds of tips I didn’t know regarding teen character, dialogue, setting and all the things that go into a YA novel.
Abbie Meaner

I’ve completed the first three modules so far, and they are much more in-depth studies than I anticipated. They immerse the student into quality story-telling techniques, using great examples from today’s best novels. I’m getting tremendous value for my investment.

Love it as it’s very descriptive, gives good illustration and is a valuable tool for all potential writers. Just completed module one! Looking forward to the rest..Due to my current work commitment, I am going a bit slower than expected. Thank you …It’s a pretty amazing experience.
Mary Verghee

I am enjoying this course and I m learning new things everyday, I warmly recommend it. The company is very professional and whenever I encounter a problem or I have enquirers, they promptly reply with excellent customer service.
Luisa Piccone

I’m still doing the course, but I’ve learned a lot so far. I’ve done other courses before, but none of them was so elucidative. Thanks for the amazing work you are doing to help writers like me hone their skills.

I have only recently started the course but the modules i have done are very good. I have learnt new things and it makes you think outside the box. I would highly recommend this course to everyone.
Dawn Walton

I am still working on the course, but I wanted to note that the way the material is presented is very engaging, and makes learning easier. I am also impressed at the amount of information presented, and in an easily-understood manner.
Johanna Fritz

A lovely learning experience. I am so happy for making the decision to take this children’s writing course! It was a far, FAR better course than I expected it to be and I was genuinely sad to complete the final lesson. Well done to all involved in this course
Stephanie Bradman

The course is well presented with the Website very professionally produced. The quality of course material is excellent and well prepared with really magnificent illustrations, and that includes the support material supplied to date. I have just completed the first module and look forward to completing the course as time allows. This brings me to my final point which is the advantage of being able to work on the modules with the flexibility of time. Thank you!

Douglas Brown

I found the course extremely enjoyable and informative. I have been considering writing a book for a while now but I’m pleased to have done the course first as it pointed out many pitfalls that I previously hadn’t considered. The presentation was beautiful and made me want to dive into it just as I would a good book. I haven’t put pen to paper yet but I certainly plan to and will do so with a great deal more confidence having learnt from the experts

Julie Holmes

I am thoroughly enjoying the course, I have just reached module 7 and am looking forward to each module as they come along. I find the course work interesting and I am picking things up when I am reading other books. Would recommend the course to anyone interesting in writing for children.

Fran Kendall

Doing this course was a nice experience. Everything was clearly explained with plenty of examples given and it inspired me not just to take the course but to actually start writing! There’s only one step left now and that’s finishing my book and get it published! Watch out for it! 🙂

Ben Piette

I am only up to module 6 but I am really enjoying studying this course and have managed to pass all the tests so far . Not bad for a 75 year old

Margaret Perrett

A great course, I’m enjoying the content and the way itis set out. Very glad I took the offer of the book too

Ann Lamont

A must do course
Hello, I have enjoyed taking part in the course,I have only done 3 parts so far. I am looking forward to finishing it shortly’ It is so interesting the way it takes us through the different age groups,it makes me want to write for all the ages. Many good ideas in this course,I would advise all to join the course and who knows what is around the corner. I personally love it,hope you do to, regards, Maxine.


I am working each chapter as I go, so I’m still very far from completion. I had started a children’s story and didn’t know where to go with it. The course is directing me with specifics…….plan, outline, set the stage, make it believable and accurate with details that researched, timely and engaging. I have never taken a specific writing course during any facet of my education, so this is a remarkably complex and complete journey….so far, so good!

Mary Heckler

I have started that course a month ago and I am really pleased with the content of it, it is full of very interesting professional advises, top tips, I found it easy to understand and to remember the important lines. I live in France it’s so exciting to be able to learn in the comfort of my home and at my own pace

Farida Hafassa

Only on module 4 at the moment but loving the course. I find 1 hour a night works for me but you have so much flexibility it’s great. The information against each module is clearly explained. I can’t wait to learn the next bit. I would highly recommend this course, it is well laid out and easy to follow.


The course is very informative however I miss not having an audio component to it. Also access is only given to a module after the test for previous module has been passed I don’t like that I would rather have access to all the modules so I can read those that interest me first. Also course has some modules of no interest to me like writing screenplays. I would’ve liked it more if all modules focused on topics of interest to me like children’s story books and non-fiction writing for children.

Naima Shaikh

Really good and interesting course on writing children’s books. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and thank you for further inspiring me to continue to write.


I am loving this course. The website is user friendly and the modules well written. I’m am presently on module 5 and so far achieving 98% overall for the course. The multiple choice tests at the end of each module are well laid out, and you receive your results Straight away, no waiting around to see if you’ve gone wrong somewhere. So, extremely pleased with myself. The course content is well laid out and easy to understand, and love the fact I can even study off line. If anyone’s thinking of studying this course, go for it you’ve nothing to lose and so much to gain.
Jayne Osborne

I am only 1/3 the way through this course; however, it has already helped. I have gone back and revised as well as re-organized my writing. I am now using what I have learned as I continue to write and revise. I am so glad that I signed up for this course.
Judi Abbott

The course highlighted aspects of writing that I hadn’t considered before. It was very informative and written so that anybody who signed up could easily understand. The downloads were an added extra. All round an enjoyable course.
Ann Smith

I have taken many writing classes and published 24 articles in both local and national magazines and have found your course interesting, entertaining, motivating and full of insight. I find the material very well organized and well-thought out.
Barb Higgins

I am really enjoying the course so far. It is well set-out and easy to work through, each module giving good examples and explanations, laced with some humour. I am feeling inspired to attempt writing but have learned that planning is key.
Deborah Christie

I would 100% happily recommend this course to anyone who is interested in writing for children. The information it provides is invaluable, especially to all those who are just new to writing like myself. Having passed the course and achieving the percentage I was aiming for : ) I am now working on my first book which I am “certain” would not have happened, had it not been for taking this course! I will continue on learning from the additional updated information that it offers to all its students and support that this wonderful site has to offer…Thank you so much for helping me achieve my dream!
