StoryCon E-Updates


StoryCon 2017 will be held in Central Glasgow on Sat 24 June and Sun 25 June 2017! Sign-up below to be the first to hear when bookings go live.

StoryCon is FREE, and you can attend one or both days full of workshops, panels and pizza in the company of other teen creative writers and illustrators from all over Scotland.

We’re looking forward to sharing all the news on StoryCon 2017 when we open for bookings – but for an idea of what StoryCon 2016 was like, here are some testimonials from our attendees last year!


“This experience helped me remember why writing meant so much to me. It is my safe place. My own little world. However, it has also helped me realise that the only thing better than creating this safe place for myself is to share it. I now feel confident enough to share my work with others, after all it is always possible that my writing could mean just as much to others as it means to me.”


“It was brilliant being reminded that there are people who make a career out of writing, and finding that there will be lot of good competition is a bit of a kick to work harder!”


“The fact that there are other kids out there just like me, compelled me to write more, the whole thing inspired me and made me more confident about my writing.”


“The huge number of young people who enjoy writing as much as I do is a huge help for me to feel I’m not alone in my love of literature. Also the extremely helpful advice the writers and illustrators gave to me, small techniques and tricks to help me really made a difference!”
