Do you dream of becoming the next bestselling author? Want to hang out with other young writers and learn about writing and publishing? Join us at the Chapter One Young Writers Conference!

The Chapter One Young Writers Conference (or Ch1Con) is a writer’s conference entirely by and for teens and young adults. As young writers ourselves, the Ch1Con team is here to help you:img_0582

  • meet fellow up-and-coming young authors
  • learn how to get your book published
  • become the best writer you can be!

Pursuing your writing dreams as a teen or young adult can often be daunting and lonely. Ch1Con gives your budding writing career a foundation on which it can flourish – and helps you establish the sort of tight-knit, supportive writing community that can make your career (and foster lifelong friendships).

If you’re ready to make connections and meet more writers, or wish you knew the next step towards getting published, join us at the Chapter One Young Writers Conference!

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.
