Medallion Press Inc. announced the opening of its new Ya-Ya line, which will be added to its family of fiction and nonfiction imprints, including the Medallion Masterpiece Collection and the new Young Adult and Christian Literature lines. Ya-Ya, which stands for “Young Adults writing for Young Adults,” will showcase aspiring authors between the ages of thirteen and eighteen. The Ya-Ya line will be comprised of a variety of fiction genres to be released in print and e-book formats.
According to Medallion’s Sales & Marketing Director Paul Ohlson, “Helen Rosburg [Medallion’s publisher] wanted to provide young adults with a voice, with the ability to tell stories to others in their age range. Instead of adults writing for young adults, young adults are writing for young adults.”
Medallion Press plans to provide young and aspiring authors with access to a broad reading audience. The editors are currently seeking Ya-Ya submissions Guidelines are available online at the publisher’s website.
