Since its popularization in the 18th century, after colliding with the expansion of postal routes, the epistolary novel seems to be here to stay. As the technology around messaging evolves, so, too, does the epistolary text, especially where young adult novels are concerned, although it reaches outwards to other genres, such as creative nonfiction and hybrid works. This seminar will offer a history of epistolary text, offer examples that cross time periods and technological trends, and explore what it is about the form that attracts so many writers.
