Saturday, February 25, 2017, is the date of this year's conference.  

This annual writing conference is held at F.R. Haythorne Jr. High School for students in grades 4 to 9.  Each year over 370 selected students from both Elk Island Public and Elk Island Catholic Schools are invited to spend the day with a variety of well-known children and young adult authors, illustrators, and graphic artists, working with them and learning "tricks of the trade".
