This Week in YA
By Voyage YA
with Kip Wilson
I’m so excited to kick off this series of weekly newsletters for you, my fellow YA enthusiasts. As a YA author and associate editor at Voyage myself, I’m looking forward to sharing exciting news from the YA world, interviews with authors and the occasional agent, editor, and professor, and last but hopefully not least, my own bit of YA inspiration each week.
About me: Kip Wilson is the author of White Rose (2019, HMH/Versify), a critically-acclaimed YA novel-in-verse about anti-Nazi political activist Sophie Scholl. White Rose was a PEN New England Susan P. Bloom Children’s Book Discovery Award winner, a Massachusetts Book Honor title, an Amelia Elizabeth Walden finalist, and the Malka Penn Award winner for Human Rights in Children’s Literature. Kip holds a Ph.D. in German Literature and was the Poetry Editor at Young Adult Review Network (YARN) for five years before joining Voyage as an Associate Editor in 2020. Her next YA novel-in-verse, The Most Dazzling Girl in Berlin, is forthcoming from HMH/Versify in March 2022.
