Mark Parsons

About Mark Parsons…

Mark Parsons has written primarily non-fiction for several years, penning approximately two hundred articles for national publications as well as a pair of non-fiction books.

His first YA novel, ROAD RASH (Knopf/Random House) is a band-on-the-road novel which explores coming into adulthood and being the driver of your own bus. 

 It was named to the 2015 ALA/YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults list, as well as Bank Street College’s Best Children’s Books of the Year list.

“I love the entire writing process, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction,” he says. “But with this book, I knew I wanted create a work featuring a young male protagonist, one who’s on his way… but maybe not quite there yet.”

About Mark’s program…

Mark will present his “Top Ten Lessons Learned” in countdown format, discussing scintillating topics such as Sticking the Landing, The OBFN*, NaNoEdMo, and What Editors Really Want. Additionally, he will be happy to take questions.

*The Obligatory Bad First Novel
