The Ch1Con team is thrilled to announce our first speaker of the 2016 Chapter One Young Writers Conference: Francesca Zappia!
Francesca is the author of YA contemporary novel Made You Up, published by Greenwillow/HarperCollins in May of 2015. She lives in central Indiana and majors in computer science at the University of Indianapolis. She spends most of her time writing, drawing her characters, and reading. Her writing is represented by Louise Fury of The Bent Agency.
Besides participating in our special “ask anything” panel, Francesca will be leading a workshop at Ch1Con 2016 on character building (which is SO EXCITING, considering how amazing the characters are in Made You Up). Plus: in honor of speaking at the conference, Francesca is pleased today to give away a SIGNED copy of Made You Up!
And, if you guess our keynote speaker (visit the giveaway to guess) you can win a Ch1Con t-shirt!!
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another speaker reveal!
