WriteOnCon is Returning February 2-4, 2017



“From 2010 to 2014, the popular online kidlit conference WriteOnCon offered writers a unique opportunity to learn and grow their craft, all from the comfort of their own homes. Over 13,000 people attended during the last year! Unfortunately, increasing time commitments meant the organizers were unable to continue the event in subsequent years. But now WriteOnCon is returning, with a new organizing team but the same purpose: to provide an affordable and fun conference experience that’s accessible to everyone.” ~ The 2017 WriteOnCon Team


If you attended WriteOnCon in the past, then I needn’t say anymore, and you can skip the rest of this post and go right to the links at the bottom. But for anyone unfamiliar with WOC, this is a 3-day online writing conference for kidlit writers. There are writing forums where you can get feedback on your query or first five pages, blog posts, live events – and Ninja Agents! The Ninja Agents – real life literary agents appearing anonymously – sneak into the forums to read, comment, and sometimes request! WOC has all the benefits of a big writing conference and none of the disadvantages (high costs, travel expenses, having to wear pants, etc.).


The time for Early Registration is NOW. It’s easy; it’s affordable; and there are perks. Critiques are on offer from agents, editors, and published authors – and they’re selling out fast. (But don’t worry. I keep seeing new ones being added.)

  10. Best. Conference. EVER! You know I met my first SOLID CP through WriteOnCon? I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited when I saw the announcement for its return. It’s going to be EPIC.

  11. I had heard about this before, but it always seemed like I’d be missing out on a lot by being at work all day and thus only being able to catch up with things after they’d happened. >_< But people seem to like it, so that's great that it's happening again.
