I recently had the privilege to participate in the 2nd Annual LitUp Festival, Books and Art for the Next Generation. Visit http://www.litupfestival.org to find out more about this incredible event that took place at the Mid-Continent Public Library’s North Independence Branch in Independence, Missouri.
What is LitUp?
The LitUp Festival is an all-day event that brings Kansas City-area teens and bestselling authors, screenwriters, poets, and illustrators together in conversation. LitUp will include keynote presentations, panel discussions, writing and illustrating workshops, a poetry slam, refreshments, fun activities, and book signings!
Teens can register for the morning session, afternoon session, or both! Each session will include a keynote presentation, book signing, followed by a choice of panel discussions. Participants can also register for one of four afternoon workshops prior to the poetry slam.
