BECOME A PART OF THE STORY

Operation Literacy presents the ultimate experience for young storytellers, educators, and book lovers of all ages, combining the fun of a national book festival with the education and guidance of a serious writer’s conference.

 

Young writers who come to StoryCon attend classes with a diverse array of author mentors who will inspire and empower them to tell their own stories with motivational pep talks, practical techniques, engaging examples, and hands-on experimentation with words. Attendees return to their school communities as enthusiastic advocates for literacy.

 

StoryCon includes the following tracks:

  • Teen Author Boot Camp

  • Tween Author Boot Camp

  • Educator Base Camp with a focus on teaching reading and writing and gaining masters degree credits for step and lane changes.

  • A general ticket with access to our Main Stage programming and panels.

  • A free Expo Hall open to the general public that includes vendors, book signings,  games, and more. 

 

We commit to provide community, connection, and world-class instruction.
