A one day conference devoted to the subject of teenage/YA writing will consist of a series of discussions including What Is Young Adult Fiction?

The other writers speaking will be David Belbin, Kevin Brooks, Anne Cassidy, Keith Gray, Graham Marks, Nicola Morgan, Beverley Naidoo and Bali Rai. Academic Alison Waller, Publicist Justin Somper, Guardian Children?s Books editor and David Fickling (publisher and editor of Mark Haddon and Philip Pullman) will also be bringing their perspective to the day. Many other writers ? some very distinguished - have booked as delegates and will speak from the floor.

Full price tickets are ?35 plus ?6.12 VAT. Students in full time education pay ?25 plus ?4.37 VAT. Prices include lunch. Turning Point is aimed at those writing and promoting YAF , rather than its core audience, so tickets are not on sale to under 18s.
