Y-Eh? Canadian young adult and middle grade books community


I discovered a fantastic Canadian YA resource this morning:  Y-Eh! Canadian young adult and middle-grade books community

How did I not know about this until now?! I have been imagining something just like this for ages.  I ever created a prototype for my web design class this term.

The site has been around for close to a year and was started by YA author Jill Murray.  The YA-Eh! team includes contributors  Cecil Castellucci, Hélène Boudreau, and Naseem Hrab.

Y-Eh!’s mission is threefold:

  1. to promote young adult literature within CanLit
  2. to promote Canadian literature within international YA scenes
  3. to foster community links between Canadian YA and middle-grade authors online

The team is currently compiling a comprehensive list of Canadian YA and middle-grade authors’ blogs and websites.  Though the site is still a bit of a work-in-progress, it’s nevertheless a great place to start if you’re looking for information on Canadian YA and middle-grade literature.
