Kip Wilson, Young Adult Author


I’m Kip Wilson, young adult author represented by Roseanne Wells of the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency. Welcome to my website!

My debut YA novel-in-verse, White Rose, about anti-Nazi political activist Sophie Scholl, will be published in Spring 2019 by HMH’s new Versify imprint. Feel free to add it on GoodReads if you want to read!

I have a Ph.D. in German Literature and a passion for books, languages, and travel. My work has appeared in the TIMELESS and SPAIN FROM A BACKPACK anthologies, as well as BLACK FOX LITERARY, FACES, COBBLESTONE, APPLESEEDS, LEARNING THROUGH HISTORY, and TRANSITIONS ABROAD magazines. See Published Work for a full list of titles. My writing has won several awards, and I’m always at work on something new. See Current Projects for more details on my book-length work.

On the editing side, I’m also proud to be the Poetry Editor at YARN: The YA Review Network and the Editorial Assistant at Laboratory Phonology.
