Highlighting Young Producers by Twisting Fate

“What if Lord Voldemort had never become Lord Voldemort? What if he found the love of his life before everything started?”

So teases the description of Knilesly’s short story, “The Queer Quill.” As one of the winners of the Twist Fate challenge earlier this year, it is a featured story in the recently published collection, Twist Fate: Teens Spin Classic Tales. Available as a physical book for libraries and contributors and freely downloadable, Twist Fate is a powerful collection to read through.

Organized into four thematic sections — Betrayal, Vengeance, Survival, and Belonging — the Twist Fate selection speaks back to popular fairly tale, manga, and YA canons.
