Each participant may only apply for one grant; duplicate applications will result in removal from consideration. Those who have received grants in the past are not eligible.
These grants include conference registration and lunch at the Colorado Teen Literature Conference scheduled for Saturday, April 15, 2023, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM at Bear Creek High School in Lakewood, Colorado. Conference participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the conference.
The featured speakers for the conference will be Wendelin Van Draanen and Mark Parsons . Additional workshops and speakers are scheduled on topics including writing workshops, new books for teens, local authors and publishing. Book sales and author signings are also scheduled.
The deadline for all grants has been extended until April 1, 2023. All applicants will be notified of final decisions by email.
Applicants who do not receive a grant will still have an opportunity to attend the conference if they can find additional funding.
