Applications are now being accepted for

The Teen Writers Conference Teen Committee.


Before you apply, please read through this email to make sure you qualify and are willing to do the work involved.


The committee will be made up of about 6, mostly based on years attended, so if you don’t make it this year, please try again.


What does the TWC Teen Committee do?

-A whole lot of things! Like spreading the word about the conference, providing help and support on the day of the event at set up and registration, and making sure new attendees feel welcome.

-We’d also like the committee’s input on classes they’d like to see, plus suggestions for keynote speakers and marketing ideas.

-Our plan is for the committee to be involved from the very first days of planning up until the day of the conference.


What are the requirements for TWC Teen Committee Members?


-Be 16 or older by conference day and must have attended the conference at least twice.

-Be willing to help advertise the conference by hanging up flyers and posting on social media sites.

-Write a blog post sometime during the year leading up to the conference.

-Be reachable—if we send you an email, text, or ask you a question on our FB group, you will be expected to respond within a reasonable amount of time. We’ll determine the best ways to communicate once we have the committee in place.

-And, of course, you must plan to attend to the conference on June 18, 2016 and be available to help attendees and help the committee members with tasks that day as the need arises.


Don’t worry; even though you’ll be helping at the conference, you will still be able to attend ALL classes and workshops.



Aside from the obvious street cred, what’s in it for me?


Members of the youth committee will receive the following:

-Free entry into the conference

-A free t-shirt to wear the day of the conference

-A volunteer experience that looks great on college and job applications.
