Writopia’s Youth Essay Conference 2020: A Celebration of Critical Thinking Across Disciplines

At this conference, the next generation of thinkers, writers, and leaders share the ideas and research that they are most passionate about with a panel of their peers and the community at large. The panels form organically from a pool of critical essays we receive from writers ages 12-18, which highlight the concerns and commentary of the next generation.


Submissions for the Essay Conference are due on December 19th, 2019.
