You are cordially invited to attend a weekend of writing workshops, craft sessions, and open mic at the CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE YOUNG WRITERS’ CONFERENCE, MAY 24-26. Now in our nineteenth year, our doors are open to high school students who wish to share their passion for story, drama, and song with their writerly brothers and sisters—and with celebrated New England authors. We offer three days of readings, improv, Moth storytelling, poetry slams, literary jazz/blues fusion, and extended friendship on the hillside campus of Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont.

OUR 2019 KEYNOTE SPEAKER IS AWARD-WINNING SINGER, SONGWRITER, & COMPOSER, MOIRA SMILEY. Moira’s work can be heard on BBC TV & radio, NPR, PBS, ABC Australia’s Books & Arts, in feature films, and on more than sixty albums. She performs regularly with her group, VOCO, and has toured with leading artists around the world—including tUnE-yArDs, Paul Hillier’s Theater of Voices, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, KITKA, the Irish super-group Solas, grammy-winning pianist, Billy Childs, The Lomax Project, and the New World Symphony. Recent solo performances include TED, Stravinsky’s Les Noces, and the London Proms Festival. In 2018, Moira released her latest solo album and choral songbook, Unzip The Horizon, and an upcoming concert at Carnegie Hall will be devoted to her work.

The APPLICATION DEADLINE of March 8 is fast approaching and the blue lights are flashing. If you have a tale to spin, or a story to share, please visit our website: http://www.champlain.edu/write
