Young Authors Conference 2024

  • Our annual Young Authors Conference was held on March 6th at Northland Community and Technical College in Thief River Falls. We had more than 415 students at this exciting event!

    Each student was able to attend 3 breakout sessions, choosing from different topics from 13 different presenters. There was no Keynote. Instead, the day was shortened and time added in-between sessions for students to find their session locations. Students also had the opportunity to purchase books from some of the authors.

    Digital illustration, drawing, movie writing, wild animal adventure, flash fiction, the art of interviewing, and learning how to write books were some of the sessions this year. Students heard from established authors such as William Durbin, Debbie Hoven, and Roxane Salonen. Some of the other presenters included Jessica Lundeen, Deb Mercier, Saphire Brown, Stephanie Olson and Bob Gasch.
