Reimbursement for Presenters
We are a small volunteer run conference with a very limited budget and as such the Colorado Teen Literature Conference is not able to reimburse session presenters for any costs associated with the conference, including but not limited to airfare and hotel costs.


Selling books at the CTLC
The Auraria bookstore sells some of the titles from the Colorado Teen Literature Conference on the exhibit floor.  As they are a smaller sized bookstore they are only able to offer select titles. Use the above contact form to inquire about including your book in the Auraria Bookstore sales.
Exhibitor tables are available for purchase to sell books and other teen literature related merchandise.
Presenters may sell their books at the end of their presentation sessions.  As this is an educational conference please limit the sale of your book to the last five minutes of the presentation. Sessions need to be focused on delivering information and sharing ideas on the topic being presented.
All persons selling books or other materials at the Colorado Teen Literature Conference are responsible for complying with sales tax regulations.
