Last episode you got to listen to a panel on writing for middle grade and young adult readers. This episode, I would like to present my final panel titled, Looking through the eyes of a child. This is, as you can probably tell, another young adult genre panel. We talked about how we capture the YA voice, write for different genders and a host of other things.
I actually consider this to be one of the best panels I was on during When Words Collide and I think you will get a lot from it.
I hope you enjoy our discussion.

Mike, Dave, Claire and Nicole talk about how they face the challenge of putting themselves in the shoes of much younger people, including other genders. How do adults see the world through the eyes of a child and place the magic of innocent youth on the page?
