Enjoy a time of worship, and inspirational messages during our general sessions.
The Kidz Lit Conference offers workshops covering a variety of subjects in multiple youth and young adult genres. We will post the workshop schedule before the conference so you can study the descriptions and make decisions as to the best for you to attend. During the conference our faculty will describe their workshop, giving you, the conferee, an opportunity to decide which works best for you.
Schedule one-on-one appointments with members of our faculty to receive direct feedback on your writing and advice on how to move your dream forward. They may even offer you a publishing or representation contract!
How would you like to spend a half hour with one of our mentors whose sole concentration is you and your writing career?
Going beyond the usual 15-minute one-on-one meetings, Advance Mentoring is your opportunity for a half hour with mentors who are also part of our faculty. During your time together, mentors pinpoint the strengths and weaknesses of your work as well as discuss career goals in a more detailed way.
Here's how it works: After looking at the mentor list, email your choice of mentor(s) to request availability. THEN: you mail (snail or e, to the mentor) a one-sheet about yourself and your work, the first ten pages of your WIP (if available and appropriate to the genre), and an overview of your goals, along with a $40 check or money order, made payable to the mentor who will set a meeting time for you after they arrive at the conference center. You should check their time sheet first on the day you schedule appointments so as not to double book.

We chose our faculty members, in part, because of their willingness to serve other writers. Mealtimes offer you the opportunity to sit with a faculty member, which gives additional time for asking questions and simply getting to know one another better.
Speakers are scheduled but subject to change.
