What is Teen Author Boot Camp?

Teen Author Boot Camp is an annual teen writers conference held every spring in Provo, Utah. The next conference is scheduled for March 26, 2022 at the Utah Valley Convention Center. Nearly a thousand aspiring teen writers come to the conference to work with bestselling authors to amp up their writing skills.

 

Past keynote speakers include Leigh Bardugo, Rena Barron, Marissa Meyer, Christopher Paolini, Ally Carter, Jay Asher, Marie Lu, Brandon Sanderson, Jessica Day George, James Dashner, Ally Condie, Shannon Hale, Kiersten White, Brandon Mull, Dan Wells, and Margaret Peterson Haddix.

Teens are encouraged to enter the First Chapter Contest, where their work is judged by industry professionals for the chance to win a commemorative plaque as well as a cash prize. Teens also have the opportunity to submit to our annual Poetry Collection curated by Leigh Statham and Melanie McFarlane and our annual Teen Anthology published by Owl Hollow Press.
