The question of what's too long or too short keeps coming up, so I crunched the numbers (for YA, anyway). The results may surprise you.

Saw this yesterday on Twitter. Really interesting, and a smart way to look at things!

I don't get it. How does a workshop address length unless that is one of the things you intend to address there?
