Changing the world's opinion… as soon as we finish this math homework
As of November 2014, TCWT has joined forces with Ch1Con, an awesome young writers’ conference based in Chicago. I–John–am incredibly excited to have the Ch1Con team on board, and we plan to work together to bring you guys as many great opportunities and resources as we possibly can. We’ll be running contests, giveaways, and ways for you to meet other teen writers, among many other things. (You can find out a little more of what we’re going to be doing together here.)
Ch1Con’s 2015 conference will take place on August 8th, 2015 in Chicago, IL. If you are in the area, you should totally check it out.
Here’s some more info about the conference and what it does:
The Chapter One Young Writers Conference is just what it sounds like: a writing conference by and for young writers.
Our attendees range in age from middle school through undergraduate. Our speakers are young writers, just like you, with the knowledge and experience necessary to succeed in the publishing industry.
Our mission is to provide affordable and fun opportunities for young writers to learn about the writing world, along with establishing a support community through which they can grow and learn. Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to take the publishing industry by storm.
The next Ch1Con will take place Saturday, August 8th, 2015 outside Chicago, IL.
Every story needs a beginning. This is ours.
