Junior Authors Writers Conferences

for ages 9 to 21

Conferences will not be offered beyond 2015.


I’m often asked why I spend so much time mentoring young writers. I do it because today’s young writers are tomorrow’s leaders in literature and communications. Their efforts will help define the limits of our future imaginings. - Laura Michelle Thomas

Junior Authors Conference Rmd Workshop“I wanted to thank you for all that you organised for yesterday’s conference. Anna had an amazing time, learnt lots and came back full of all people she had met and the workshops you had provided. It was clearly a very enriching experience for her. Thank you for hard-work and dedication to helping young writers like her.” - Caroline, Parent of Junior Author

Thank you for having this conference. I learned how to improve my writing and how to get published.

“I’d just like to mention that the conference yesterday was a huge hit! A couple of my friends who attended yesterday had rave reviews for it.” - Amneet, LTC Team Member and Conference Assistant

Thanks so much for giving me this opportunity! It means a lot to me, as someone who has always only loved writing, yet never been able to consider it a realistic career path.
