WriteOnCon is a virtual kidlit writers conference made by a vibrant group of readers, writers, and book nerds.
WriteOnCon was founded in 2010 by Jamie Harrington, Elana Johnson, and Casey McCormick and quickly became a favourite event among kidlit writers. After a short hiatus, it was relaunched in 2017 under a new team led by Seabrooke Leckie. WriteOnCon’s mission has from the start been to make the conference experience accessible to everyone. We also strongly believe in fair compensation for speakers and staff. 100% of admission proceeds go toward operating expenses and honoraria for the people who work so hard to bring the event to life. We hope you’ll join us - we know you’ll have a great time!
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.
