The mission of the Colorado Teen Literature Conference is to build a community of teens, readers, writers, authors, and literacy advocates.

There are few conferences that I find as valuable and inspiriting as this. It’s a thrill to attend.
 - Todd Mitchell



The Colorado Teen Literature Conference is an annual event held each spring in the Denver Metro region of Colorado to promote and celebrate teen literature.

Fantastic job! Really one of the best conferences I've ever been a part of.
-Pete Hautman
