Young Authors Conference

SBC's Young Authors Conference (YAC) gives 4th-8th grade students the opportunity to learn from professionals with real writing experience. At the conference students attend a keynote address and three interactive writing sessions led by local fiction and non-fiction writers, poets, songwriters, playwrights, actors, and illustrators. The presenters encourage and challenge students to become better writers. Students leave YAC with a greater passion to write and a new set of strategies and ideas with which to experiment.

Wow!!!  The Young Authors Conference was such a well-planned, well-run, and rich opportunity for all!  It was a privilege to be a part of it in my small way and I will be recommending Success Beyond the Classroom programs to everyone I know!  Congratulations on a wonderful and meaningful contribution to the betterment of our community and society!
