The Kitschies

The prize for progressive, intelligent & entertaining fiction that contains elements of the speculative or fantastic --

“If you read what teenagers write, it’s much, much darker than anything a young adult author would publish. They write hopelessness, despair, suicide, murder. I don’t think that’s a bad thing. That’s the age you’re reckoning with stuff. And I think that if you’re a YA writer who isn’t engaging with that on some level then you’re leaving them to fend for themselves.”
