The YA Collective

Curated by teens, for teens, The YA Collective is a program at Scribblers Festival Family Weekend. Taking place on Saturday, 9 May 2020, the day will feature a series of young adult focused sessions featuring our guest YA authors. Stay tuned for the full Family Program coming out in March.

Want to be a Youth Curator for The YA Collective?

No one knows young adults better than, well...young adults themselves! Scribblers is seeking Youth Curators to shape a day-long program dedicated to YA literature during the 2020 Scribblers Festival’s Family Weekend. This opportunity is a fantastic chance to learn what really goes in to developing a creative festival, interact with Festival visitors, and expand your creative and leadership potential.   Our Youth Curators will be mentored in programming the content for The YA Collective. You’ll be expected to bring your own ideas and energy to the program and take the lead as facilitators, researchers, interviewers, reviewers, and hosts. Do you have what it takes to be one of Scribblers Festival’s 2020 Youth Curators?
