Presenter Application

The 33rd Annual Colorado Teen Literature Conference will be held at the Tivoli on the Auraria Campus on Saturday, April 9, 2022, with keynote speakers Adam Silvera (author of More Happy Than Not and others) and Roshani Chokshi (author of The Star-Touched Queen 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 and 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. This year we especially encourage proposals in the following areas: Togetherness Across Distance, Community, and Social Connections through different mediums (graphic literature, art, etc.).

If accepted up to two presenters are given free spots to the conference.  This includes continental breakfast and lunch.  Additional presenters may register and pay to attend the conference. The Tivoli does provide screens and projectors.  Please plan to bring any additional equipment as needed.

 

Deadline for proposals is November 5, 2021!
