Weather Disclaimer

While the planning committee does everything we can to keep the conference open, in the event of a weather emergency the CTLC committee reserves the right to cancel the conference. In the event that the conference is canceled due to inclement weather (and by inclement we mean an honest-to-goodness-blizzard-conditions) we will not be able to refund your registration fees. We realize that this sounds unfair, however, as weather does not give us advance notice, the conference committee will have already paid for the conference food and the keynote speakers will have already traveled to Denver for the event. We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause.

Due to costs paid by the conference, last day to cancel with refunds is 30th of March. Additionally, for in-person conferences, meal choices are not able to change after this date. If the conference is unavoidably cancelled (due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances) refunds are not able to be issued.

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
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.
