"Retro Electronic typewriter with sheet, isolated on white background"

Write On: e-Typewriter Poetry
Time travel to the 20th century to type an original Ode to Teen Lit Con or some other poem on an electric typewriter. If the click-clack of the keys isn’t inspiration enough, get a consultation from the Teen Lit Con Poet-in-Residence, Molly van Avery (check your program). Use carbonless copy paper to share your poem for the Teen Lit Con archives!


Attention Teen Lit Con Visitors:

Prizes & Freebies

In addition to game prizes and event giveaways, there will be publisher freebies distributed in a variety of venues. All of the items are limited and available only while supplies last. We’re sorry if you missed out on something cool, but the items or substitutes for them cannot be provided after the event by any of the Teen Lit Con partners.
