Abstract

This article, drawing on a panel discussion from the 2018 November SLAV conference, reflects on LGBTQIA+ writing in the current Australian young adult fiction landscape, situated within what has been a strong worldwide movement towards diversity of representation in young adult writing, and explores the ways in which diverse and inclusive collections are of value to young people.
