Fireside Fandomentals: Young Adult Story Pitches with Gretchen

In the this episode of Fireside Fandomentals, our special Fandomentals+ subscriber exclusive podcast, Gretchen starts off on a whole new segment: Young Adult Story Pitches, or YAS Pitches for short. With input from a random generator for genre, setting, protagonist role, and initial conflict, she crafts a young adult trilogy with pirates, non-binary sirens, culture clash, the lurking horror of an eldritch apocalypse, and a queer, deaf, female protagonist seeking to clear her name from the belief that she destroyed her family in a shipwreck!
