Ch1Con gave me the amazing opportunity to connect with and learn from other young writers at various stages in the writing and publishing process. It can be so easy to get overwhelmed as a young writer just starting out, and Ch1Con is an excellent way to find encouragement, friendship, and connections in the writing community. I can’t wait to return!

I walked into Ch1Con as an obscure teenage internet writer with a bad first draft of a novel and a pack-a-day procrastination problem, and every year I walk out the same way I did after that first weekend: Rejuvenated. Join us for the speakers, the swag, and the sessions. Stay for the pizza, the movies, and the tomato-clad community that will support you for years to come.
