When did StoryCon start?

StoryCon first started as part of What's Your Story?, a Scotland-wide programme of support for teenage writers and illustrators that ran from 2015 until 2020. It was first planned by the teens who were part of our StoryBoard – a year-long 'crash course' development programme about living and working as a writer and illustrator in Scotland.

Now, StoryCon carries on their good work, and we held an online conference in 2022. For videos and resources from StoryCon and from lots of the great people we've worked with, check out our Young Writers page.
