As I’m sure you all know (and might be sick of hearing), I was lucky enough to attend YALC this past weekend. The Young Adult Literature Convention is part of London Film and Comic Con and is held once a year. I had never been before and was incredibly excited to attend – I have friends who have been, and they absolutely loved it. I got my reading list together, came up with some tips for attending, made some pals on Twitter, packed my bags, and headed to London.
As many UK readers know, the Young Adult Literature Convention (YALC) is coming up this week! Part of London Film and Comic Con, YALC celebrates YA books, readers, and authors in one happy weekend. I’m going to YALC for the first time, as I’m sure many others are too, but I am a seasoned attendee of both New York Comic Con and professional conferences. I thought I’d share some general conference-going tips to (hopefully) make your life a bit easier and more comfortable at YALC.
