SESSIONS ARE ALWAYS SUBJECT TO CHANGE 

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016: The schedule is now as "final" as it ever gets! Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)

So You Want To Sell a Story - The Teen Version

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A panel aimed at kids 10- 17ish, focusing on how to start on the writer’s path, where to find and how to read guidelines, what markets want work from kids, and what pitfalls to avoid. If there is time and interest, young writers can bring very short works or excerpts for gentle critique.
