Register for Youth Writing Conference


Registration will open in March. Student registration is $50. Teachers who bring four or more students attend for free. Lunch is included in the registration fee. Students will also receive a notebook, pen, and souvenir bag.

Review the descriptions in the sessions tab before opening the registration form. The list in the form is abbreviated to include titles only.


There are two ways to handle payment:

One, students register online and give teachers their payments. Teachers collect all payments and then pay by credit card, eCheck, or purchase order, using the payment button below. Submit the number of students plus the teacher's name. It will not be necessary to list the names of all the students. Teachers paying by PO will receive an invoice from Katie Stinnett ( within three business days. This is our preferred method of payment.

Two, students may complete the registration and payment process entirely by themselves, using the buttons below. Students will be asked for the name of a supervising teacher. This will be the teacher who receives student schedules and event information; it is generally the teacher chaperone. Students who attend independently--without a school chaperone--will be asked to provide an email address where information may be sent. Students can pay with a credit card or eCheck.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR STUDENTS: All students who are paying online must use the individual payment option. The classroom option is only for teachers.

Parking passes for teachers and parents who are attending all day are available for $3. A pass will be emailed the week of the event. A pass is not needed for parents who just drop off students. Buses park for free.
