The Ch1Con team is excited to announce the Ch1Con Yule Ball!
The Yule Ball will be an hour-and-a-half long live video panel taking place Saturday, January 23 from 4:00 to 5:30 PM EST. It’ll feature young authors, answering YOUR questions about writing and the publishing process. (Oh, and did we mention that there will be all kinds of awesome giveaways too?)
Our amazing panelists are:
Ava is the debut author of YA science fiction novel Beyond the Red, which Sky Pony Press will be releasing March 1st! She’s also an assistant editor at Entangled Publishing, blogs about writing and publishing at Writability (which celebrated one million hits, in 2015!), and vlogs at bookishpixie. Oh, and on top of all of that, she’s a college senior (and spoke at Ch1Con 2015!). As if she isn’t already doing enough. Her writing is represented by Louise Fury at The Bent Agency.
Eilis is the debut author of science fiction novel Oasis, which Gill + Macmillan will be releasing April 1st! Additionally, she’s the Galway NaNoWriMo co-captain and got her book deal when she was sixteen. (So basically she’s awesome.)

Christina Li is a YA writer represented by Jess Regel of Foundry Literary + Media. She’s also currently in high school (aaand is maybe, possibly a member of this year’s Ch1Con team!).
Jordan is a YA writer represented by Emily Keyes of Fuse Literary. He’s a senior in high school, an alum of the Alpha Workshop, and recently was accepted to Harvard University. (Congrats!)
