Published pro event this fall

I want to let all our published pros know about a great opportunity coming up this fall! YALSA's YA Lit Symposium will be taking place in Portland, OR, this year, November 6-8, 2015. I went to the one in Austin last year, and it was a blast! If folks have recent or soon-to-be-released YA books, they should see if they can get their publishers to sponsor them. More information about the conference can be found here ( And the specific details to relay to publishers is below:

Author Participation   —  in-kind
YALSA’s Program Officer for Conferences & Events is happy to work with publishers to feature authors at the symposium.  Opportunities include a Book Blitz, panel presentations and keynoters for Sat. and a Sun. lunches.  Please contact Nichole  O’Connor at or 312.280.4387.  Additional ideas for author participation are welcome.  This is an especially great opportunity for any authors you may have in the local area.
