Presenter Application

The 35th Annual Colorado Teen Literature Conference will be held at Bear Creek High School on Saturday, April 15, 2023, with keynote speakers Mark Parsons (author of The 9:09 Project, Road Rash, and others) and Wendelin Van Drannen (author of The Peach Rebellion, the Sammy Keyes series, and others).

 

We are currently accepting proposals for program sessions at the conference. This is an excellent opportunity to try your hand as a presenter or moderator of a discussion panel.  Traditionally this forum has been a terrific event for networking, learning about best practices for working with our teen populations, and keeping current in teen literature.

 

We are looking for workshops that appeal to an audience of both adults (teachers and librarians) and teens, presented by authors, educators, or experts in young adult literature.

If accepted up to two presenters are given free spots at the conference.  This includes continental breakfast and lunch.  Additional presenters may register and pay to attend the conference.

 

Deadline for proposals is January 3, 2023
