December Ch1Con Chats

Hey, guys! Welcome to December.

This month we’ll be having two different live chat opportunities for you to learn about writing from us and for us to learn about writing from you.

First, tomorrow (Thursday, December 4th) at 8 PM EST, we’ll be hosting our monthly video Ch1Con Chat, in which members of the Ch1Con team answer YOUR questions (and also goof off a lot). This month’s topic is Diversity in YA. You can participate by asking us questions on Twitter using #Ch1Con and watch the chat on our Youtube channel:

Also, I’m conveniently embedding it in the post below:

Second: next Wednesday (December 10th) at 9:30 PM EST, we’ll be hosting a Ch1Con Twitter Chat in which we ask YOU questions, because we’d love to hear your thoughts on all these various writing-related things and also we’re sure you have some good stories to tell. The topic for this chat is balancing school/life with writing. Use #Ch1Con to participate.

Normally we’d have another Ch1Con Twitter Chat for you, but the last two Wednesdays of the month are Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, and we don’t want to steal you away from your family too much.

Happy holidays! We hope to see you on the 4th and the 10th!

Ch1Con Chat is something we’ve been talking about doing for ages, so I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Chat with you Thursday!
