I'm a twenty-one-year-old aspiring YA author, college student, and Netflix addict. When I'm not busy being one of those things, I also run Ch1Con, intern for the Elizabeth Kaplan Literary Agency, blog for The Huffington Post, am an admin/writer for Teens Can Write, Too!, shelve books at a used bookshop, and drink arguably too much tea. (I mean, you can argue it. But you'll be wrong.) I completed a remote internship with another lit agent winter 2014 and studied abroad at Oxford summer 2014. I met JK Rowling and lived to tell the tale.
We’re coming at you today to let you know two very exciting things:
The anthology of winning poems and short stories from the First Annual Chapter One Young Writers Conference Writing Competition is now available on Amazon as a Kindle e-book! And for the next couple weeks, it’s only $0.99! We’re in love with the winning poems and short stories, and we think you will be too. Check the e-book out on Amazon by clicking here. And make sure to purchase it while it’s at this special sale price, only available until the end of July! (If you’d prefer to purchase the anthology in a different e-book form, it will also be available on Nook and iBooks come August.)
2017 conference session descriptions are available! We’re so excited about what all of our speakers are talking about at Ch1Con this year. You can check out the descriptions by visiting our Schedule page.
The Ch1Con team is extraordinarily excited to announce our fifth and final speaker for the 2017 Chapter One Young Writers Conference: Booki Vivat!
Booki Vivat is the New York Times bestselling author of the Frazzled series. She has been doodling somewhat seriously since 2011 and not-so-seriously since childhood. She grew up in Southern California and graduated from the University of California, San Diego. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York. You can follow her on Instagram at @bookibookibooki and on Twitter at @thebookiv.
Booki will be leading a workshop (topic TBA!) and participating in our special “ask anything” panel at Ch1Con 2017.
Hey, everybody! We’re thrilled to announce the Ch1Con Blog Tour 2017!
We put together this annual blog tour to share info and fun, behind-the-scenes facts about the Chapter One Young Writers Conference (and to give away some awesome prizes, of course). The 2017 blog tour will kick off on Saturday, April 15 and conclude at the end of May. Follow the tour for guest posts, interviews by the Ch1Con team–and, of course, giveaways of books and critiques!
