Young Authors Conference

Authors doing book signings
  • The Young Authors Conference is designed to encourage and inspire young writers in grades 5-8, promoting student enthusiasm and competence in written communication. Through interaction with established authors, poets, playwrights, storytellers, illustrators, journalists and teachers of writing, students discover and explore their writing talents and potential. A general session for all students is followed by several in-depth hands-on breakout sessions. A book fair and autographing session with authors and illustrators is also scheduled.

    2024 Conference was March 6, 2024, at Northland Community and Technical College in Thief River Falls.

    Students are able to attend 3 different sessions throughout the day, participate in a book fair and an autograph session with authors and illustrators.
