The wonderful Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman has announced the UK’s first ever YA literature convention.
But that’s not all! Malorie has also announced a campaign to support YA fiction in the UK, which is obviously completely brilliant news.
The convention will take place at the London Film and Comic Con 2014 and will feature author events – including talks, workshops, and signings – a book sales area, and publisher stands promoting new and upcoming titles.
We’re obviously very excited and can’t wait to hear even more about it.
What do you think? Will you be going? Who would you like to see there?
