About YALC: The first YA Literature Convention took place in 2014. It was championed by Malorie Blackman and was one of the key projects of her time as Waterstones Children’s Laureate (2013-2015). The YALC is now run by a Working Group made up of representatives from UK YA Publishers and Showmasters events.
