Changing the world's opinion… as soon as we finish this math homework
Hey guys! I’m John, founder of TCWT. As a teen writer myself, I started this blog in hopes of gathering together a community of young writers who are passionate about what they do, and it’s been really exciting to watch the site grow over the years.
Personally: I’m seventeen. I’m a YA writer and a book geek. I recently finished a year-and-a-half stint interning at the literary agency Fuse Literary. Some of my other pastimes include chocolate cake, Game of Thrones, and tweeting too much.
To contact me personally, email firstname.lastname@example.org. I also have a website at johnhansenauthor.com.
When I’m not writing (which is rarely), I’m a junior at the University of Michigan, majoring in Creative Writing & Literature and minoring in Global Media Studies. When I am writing, I’m a superhero (or aspiring YA author–take your pick). I founded and run the Chapter One Young Writers Conference. My hobbies include Netflix and not going outside.
My personal blog is at www.juliathewritergirl.com.
I’m a student at BYU-Idaho working towards my English major and a novelist of primarily YA fantasy. I’m also the associate online administrator for Ch1Con! In my free time, I play cello, squee at kittens, and obsess over the BBC.
You can find me at my website: http://www.kirabrighton.weebly.com.
I am an eighteen-year-old freshman at Sarah Lawrence College. I’ve been writing since I was seven and have written four or five novels, depending on what you count as a novel. I am the creative consultant for Ch1Con and have attended and spoken at the last two conferences. In my free time, I scroll through Tumblr and write poetry to avoid working on my prose.
My name is Aisha, but I am most commonly referred to as the Queen of Procrastination. That’s a different story. I’m a fifteen year old writer currently stationed in Washington State. I can normally be found running madly to catch my bus or sleeping (these two things may or may not be connected). I mostly write fantasy or YA fantasy, but I have been branching out lately–including working on my spoken word skills.
Emma Rose Ryan:
I’m a sixteen year old junior living somewhere in the Midwest. My family and green tea notwithstanding, I love stories more than anything in the world. My primary obsessions are middle-grade fiction and fairy tales. However, I also enjoy reading classic lit, YA romances and modernizations/adaptations of any sort. I automatically adore anything that involves superheros, dragons, or engaging female protagonists. I writes short-stories, tweets, MG fantasy novels I’ll never finish, and content for the Ch1Con Tumblr. In my limited free time, I can be found working with young actors at my local theater company, crying over Agents of Shield GIF sets, and listening to Welcome To Night Vale.
