A [Virtual] Writing Conference Just for Teens!


Do you know a teen in grades 7–12 who has an interest in writing? Or maybe a student who struggles with academic writing? If so, the Get Inked Teen Writing Conference is an amazing opportunity for them.

Get Inked is an inclusive, safe space for teens to work on their writing with like-minded peers and published authors.

Our 2021 conference featured four young adult authors: Kekla Magoon, winner of the National Book Award, Lisa Deselm, Mary Ann Steinke-Moore, and Jean Alicia Elster. We also welcomed editor, Jiwon Choi, who discussed opportunities for teens to publish their work. Registration included two autographed books and a Get Inked Writer's Notebook.

Cost is $70 per student and provides teen writers the experience of attending the type of event typically reserved for adults. From keynote speakers to hands-on breakout sessions, students will spend time with published authors while they improve their own writing skills.

At Get Inked you will:

• Experiment with style and form •

• Share work, ideas, and goals •

• Learn about the editing and publishing process •

• Connect with other teens who like to write •

Space is limited so check back soon!
