Saundra Mitchell Edits the ‘Defying the Dark’ YA Anthology
Fifteen of these contributions came from established authors. Prior to publication, Mitchell sent out a call for submissions to never-before-published writers. More than one thousand two hundred pieces were sent in; three were chosen as winners. One piece, penned by Kate Espey, is included in the book itself. All three stories were posted (in full) at the Defying the Dark website.
The full list of contributors include Sarah Rees Brennan, Kate Espey, Tessa Gratton, Rachel Hawkins, Christine Johnson, Valerie Kemp, Malinda Lo, Myra Mcentire, Saundra Mitchell, Sarah Ockler, Jackson Pearce, Aprilynne Pike, Dia Reeves, Beth Revis, Carrie Ryan, Jon Skovron, and Courtney Summers.
