Stories to Celebrate the Magic of Reading and Writing YA

Featuring: Escape by Tanvi Berwah

Created by New York Times bestselling authors Emily X. R. Pan and Nova Ren Suma, Foreshadow is so much more than a short story collection. A trove of unforgettable fiction makes up the beating heart of this book, and the accompanying essays offer an ode to young adult literature, as well as practical advice to writers.

What makes these memorable stories tick? What sparked them? How do authors build a world or refine a voice or weave in that deliciously creepy atmosphere to bring their writing to the next level? Addressing these questions and many more are essays and discussions on craft and process by Nova Ren Suma and Emily X. R. Pan.

This unique compilation reveals and celebrates the magic of reading and writing for young adults.

Resisters - For Books Sake

Stories of Rebel Girls, Revolution, Empowerment and Escape

Featuring: Disharmony by Tanvi Berwah

Featuring a diverse range of characters, genres, styles and subject matters, the eighteen stories in (RE)Sisters include; a dystopian world where skin colour is changed by a sinister procedure; a spelling bee that stings like a wasp; a girl kept captive by a man with no heart; an indefinite hospital quarantine; a runaway best friend; a lost habit of checking shoes for scorpions; an abandoned bathtub; a stolen hot air balloon, and much, much more besides.

Compiled following a global call for submissions, (RE)Sisters explores today’s teenage girls’ fears, frustrations, strength, stories, potential, and power. A fierce, fearless and topical tribute to girls’ rebellion and resistance, (RE)Sisters is defiant, distinctive and unapologetic. Just like its heroines.

Flynn, Erin Darby Gesell, Jessica Glaisher, Valerie Hunter, Evangeline Jennings, Couri Johnson, Angela Kanter, Ioanna Mavrou, Lucy Middlemass, Emily Paull, Eliana Ramage, Anna Scott, Kaye Spivey and Alaina Symanovich.
