The Ch1Con team is thrilled to announce our first speaker of the 2017 Chapter One Young Writers Conference: Patrice Caldwell!
Patrice is a twenty-four-year-old introvert gone wild. By day, she’s an editorial assistant at Scholastic, and by night (and early morning, depending on her mood) she’s a writer. She’s also a Marketing Consultant for Ch1Con. She hails from the great state of Texas, and graduated from Wellesley College in 2015 with majors in Political Science and English. In 2014, she won the SCBWI Student Writer Scholarship thanks to one of her manuscripts, Alex de Vega and Pandora’s Box.
Besides being a Ch1Con team member, Patrice will be participating in a panel of young publishing professionals, talking all about the publishing process! Plus: in honor of speaking at the conference, Patrice is pleased today to give away a first five hundred words critique!
Just click the link below to enter the raffle. We’ll leave it open for one week!
And, if you guess our keynote speaker (enter the giveaway here) you can win a prize pack of signed books by Susan Dennard, Adam Silvera, and Corey Ann Haydu! First hint of who our 2017 keynote speaker is: she is a New York Times bestselling author!
