Young Adult Titles — In 2018/19, we are experimenting with varying the days, so those with regular commitments can join more often. Keep an eye on EarlyWord announcements for exact day and time. The next one will be Wednesday, Oct, 23rd, 2:30 to 3:30 ET.

To join EarlyWord’s GalleyChat:

  1. If you are not already on Twitter, set up an account.
  2. Set an alarm on your calendar to remind you of the chat dates and time
  3. Just before the discussion begins, log on to Twitter or whatever interface you prefer.
  4. To follow the discussion, enter #ewgc for adult galley chat or #ewgcya for YA.
  5. To post a comment, make sure that you include hashtag #ewgc or #ewgcya in each of your tweets. Please write book titles in ALL CAPS, to make them stand out. (like this — Has anyone else read MIRACLE SUBMARINE by Angie Kim? #ewyagc). Since this is a chat about galleys, we ask that you only tweet about forthcoming books.

We look forward to seeing you!
