Must Young Adult (YA) fiction always feature a young hero or heroine as a protagonist? And do they have to address heavy moral dilemmas? These are questions which are addressed in this panel by three distinctive Singapore YA writers whose works range from zombie apocalypse to time-travel adventures. They will also discuss their strategies in determining the tone, atmosphere and characterisation when appealing to teens and young adults.
This event is organised by Words Go Round, an outreach programme by the Singapore Writers Festival.
