Each year over 400 selected students in grades 4 to 9 from both Elk Island Public Schools and Elk Island Catholic Schools are invited to spend the day with a variety of well-known children and young adult authors, illustrators and graphic artists—working with them and learning the tricks of the trade.
Students who show special interest or aptitude in the areas of writing and illustration are invited by their teacher to attend the conference. Attendance is teacher selected and there is no open registration, however, every attempt is made to give opportunities to those students who would value most from this experience.
If you have been selected, please return your parent permission form to your school's YAC representative, you will then be provided with the information to complete your registration.
Registration Fee: $30 per student
(includes registration, snack, pencil and writing journal)
