Hitch Up Your Petticoats:
Stacey Lee Reveals
How to Write Historical Fiction


Saturday, April 10, 2021
4:00 pm. – 5:30 pm.


Have you ever considered writing historical fiction? How do you create vivid historical settings, build compelling protagonists and antagonists, and make your teen characters sound authentic for the time period but relatable to contemporary YA and MG audiences?

Learn strategies, tips, and resources for writing gripping historical fiction from award-winning author Stacey Lee.


About Our Speaker:

Stacey Lee is an award-winning author of historical and contemporary young adult fiction, including OUTRUN THE MOON, which won the 2017 Pen Center Award for Young Adult Fiction, and her most recent THE DOWNSTAIRS GIRL, which Booklist called “Spectacular.”

A native of southern California and fourth-generation Chinese American, she
graduated from UCLA then got her law degree at UC Davis King Hall.

After practicing law in Silicon Valley for several years, she finally took up the pen because she wanted the perks of being able to nap during the day, and it was easier than moving to Spain. Follow her on Instagram and Twitter: @staceyleeauthor.
