CYA All-Stars Writers &
Illustrators Conference

The All-Stars Conference is for new and established writers and illustrators, and a space that brings together learning the craft of writing, illustrating, publishing and beyond.

And this year we're going to be virtually all over the place.

We've made the call and will be running this year's conference online. While we had hoped to keep the onsite days, we've decided to make the call earlier than originally planned and expend the experience.

Rather than run three streams a day over one weekend, we've decided to run one stream a day over three weekends, which means you won't need to choose between sessions!

You're going to get to do it ALL!

And if you're up for a bootcamp and an assessment, we're going to move those forward to the weekend of 4 & 5 July so your conference sessions won't even be interrupted.
