#YAlitchat is also a weekly twitter chat for anyone involved in the writing, editing , marketing or publishing of Young Adult literature. #YAlitchat takes place at 9PM EST and goes until 10:15PM or sometimes later if there is a special guest. There is a guided discussion three weeks out of the month and one week each month, there is open discussion.
For daily tweets relating to Young Adult literature that may be of interest to our writers, I have started a #YAlitchat Twibe! Our Twibe is a twitter group for #YAlitchat members. Visit http://twibes.com/YALITCHAT to join.
There are many other writing/publishing related chats on twitter. @inkyelbows has compiled a list and helpful guide to twitter chats here.
If you have a topic you’d like discussed, send me an email at chat at yalitchat dot com.
All 2010 transcripts can be viewed at YALITCHAT.COM. We only archive chats in the current year!
