Some of the world’s best Young Adult writers are right under your nose, and you might not even know it. Begin, End, Begin: A #LoveOzYA Anthology was put together to celebrate great Aussie authors, and is a mixed bag of sci-fi, romance, magical realism and everything in between. Contributors Danielle Binks, Amie Kaufman, Will Kostakis, Jaclyn Moriarty and Gabrielle Tozer talk about how #LoveOzYA went from a hashtag to an anthology, and why it’s so important to explore your own book backyard.
