What is WriteOnCon?
WriteOnCon is a three-day online children’s book conference for writers and illustrators of picture books, middle grade, and young adult. It was founded in 2010 and is now run by a new team of writers who are eager to hearken back to the awesomeness that they remember so fondly from being attendees over the years, while also bringing exciting new elements to the mix.
WriteOnCon features blogs, vlogs, pitch sessions, Q&As, critique forums, and more — there’s something for every writer/illustrator, in every stage of their career. From the comfort of your home, a library, a coffee shop — any place with an internet connection — you can meet agents and editors, connect with potential critique partners, and generally soak up a whole bunch of knowledge!
We here at WriteOnCon view all organizers, volunteers, participants, and industry professionals as part of the kidlit family, and thus strive for an environment where everyone is treated with kindness, empathy, and respect. By registering for WriteOnCon, signing up to present, purchasing a critique during our fundraiser, and/or participating on our forums, you are agreeing to abide by our Harassment and Accessibility Policies.
