Teenagers at a mall--their thoughts on books and writing



If you know a teenager who lives in Utah, chances are they will have an amazing time at a writers conference just for them. Register at www.writerscubed.com

Information in a nutshell:

Teen Author Boot Camp

At the conference there will be more than ten different published authors teaching classes that center on creative writing skills such as: plotting, dialog, creating realistic characters, writing with voice, etc.

In conjunction with the conference is a first chapter writing contest. Every teenager can submit the first chapter or first ten pages of a book they are working on or have written. First prize is a $100 gift certificate to University Mall in Orem, Utah.

Cure teenage boredom and pass the good news along!
