A Super Resource for Young Writers
By Lauren, age 16, California

Novel publication is a great mystery to most teens. I pursued it before I was ready (though 12-year-olds have written some great books), learning the ins and outs of the query letter, synopsis, and platform branding, but the industry is constantly changing, especially with the rise of e-books. That's where WriteOnCon comes in. There's no price tag, no driving anywhere, and if you miss an event you can still catch every character. Other writers can show you the ropes in the forums, and the live chat sessions will answer any other questions that may arise. This year the conference took place from August 16th to 18th. Check their website, www.writeoncon.com, for future events. They host guest speakers every month, so check the site often. You might even hear from one of your favorite authors!
