The bad news:
Wendy, Leigh, Kelley, Nyrae, and Chanelle are moving out of YAtopia. We’re sure they’ll come back to visit us on major YAtopian holidays, but their careers are taking off and we wish them the best of luck under the bright lights of the big city.
Lots of good news:
We will still have the awesome content and contests you’ve come to expect from us because…
Sharon, DJ, and Sarah are sticking around. We love YAtopia and there’s no place else we’d rather be, but we can’t live here alone so….
We have already recruited three new awesome YAtopians. You’ll learn more about them in a little while, but here’s some info to whet your appetite:
That leaves us with six YAtopians. Now, six may be a lucky number in some cultures, but not in our shiny green corner of the internet… No, we’re much fonder of the number ten. So we’re holding an OPEN CALL to find four new YAtopians!
What are the civic duties of a YAtopian, you ask?
- Post at least one original blog post per month (in English, as scheduled) related to the topics of books, writing, reading, teens, middle-grade, new adult, young adult, publishing, writing life, book promotion, etc.
- Keep up on group emails, which are usually light unless there’s something big going on.
- Participation in monthly features and organization of additional contests/features is voluntary, but encouraged.
- Promote YAtopian posts, contests, etc through your personal social media accounts.
To apply to be one of the few, the proud, the YAtopians, fill out the form below. (Serious applicants only, please.) Applications are due by 11:59 PM EST Monday October 8th and we will send out citizenship papers on Monday October 15th. We’ll introduce our new YAtopians to the world starting the week of October 22nd.
APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED. Thank you.
