Young Author's Conference
Brought to you by the Oakland County Reading Council
Calling All Young Authors!
Our annual Young Author's Conference is a great opportunity for children in grades 2 - 5 who have an interest in writing. Participants will get to showcase a published piece of writing, experience a Writer's Workshop, and meet a Michigan author! They will leave with great memories, a new Writer's Notebook, and the inspiration to keep on writing!
- Young authors need to bring a published piece of writing with them, which they have completed at school under the guidance of a teacher.
- Parents must accompany their young author. There will be a presentation for our VIPs (Very Important Parents) while their children are experiencing the writerly life!
- A book vendor will be on hand for you to purchase books for your young author if you choose.
- Light refreshments will also be served.
