Debut YA Writers Panel | Wisconsin Book Festival

While the focus is on authors of fiction or poetry, codes beside the names indicate the writers who have also produced nonfiction or plays. For authors who have published many books, the works cited are selective. These Wisconsin writers cannot be classified according to genres, which range from historical novels to nature poems, from romances to horror tales. Nor can their writing be categorized by a particular place, although each writer has a Wisconsin connection. Some were born in Wisconsin, but others came to this state from as far away as Russia, Vietnam, India, and South Africa. This bibliography has been compiled so that we may share the diversity and appreciate the creativity being expressed by the women of Wisconsin — both those who grew up in the neighborhoods of this state as well as those who were transplanted to Wisconsin communities either permanently or briefly.
