It’s official! The 2017 Chapter One Young Writers Conference will take place Saturday, August 5th at the SPACE by Doejo event center in downtown Chicago!! (And as an added bonus, our conference room is accessible through the After-Words bookshop, so this year will be extra bookish.)
Mark your calendars, because we are SO EXCITED to bring the 2017 conference to you! We’re thrilled about the move to downtown and hope you are too (we’re right by Navy Pier!). We can’t wait to share our speakers and other announcements with you, so stay tuned for lots more info, coming soon!
P.S. For those who’ll need a place to stay for the conference, hang tight! We’ll have info about a hotel with a special Ch1Con group discount coming to you soon.
