Sessions run about 45 minutes. Past conference topics have included big issues in YA, writing critical reviews, learning to podcast, and ways to support diverse books. Repeat visits to past topics are welcome alongside new ideas. A few thoughts—we’ve never talked specifically religion (books written for a specific audience, books specifically addressing social and cultural topics related to religion), and there’s always room for conversations about class, race, disability, sex. gender, politics, and pictures!
Unfortunately, we don’t have the funds to waive registration for participants, but we can promise a great time. If you are a writer and would like to come, consider asking your publisher to cover the registration cost; if you are a publisher, please contact us if you’d like to steer any of your authors our way.
