In Monique Polak's latest YA novel, Bullies Rule, two school bullies are rewarded, instead of punished for their bad behavior. Monique will discuss the inspiration behind this story, which is based on true events. She will also talk about the challenges of writing from the point of view of an unlikeable young person. Monique's workshop will include a writing activity in which participants will be encouraged to look at bullying in ways they have not done before.
