What is StoryCon?

Everyone has a story to tell. That’s why Huntington University hosts StoryCon – to showcase the work of student writers like you and provide tips and tricks to becoming even better.  

Whether you prefer a novel, play, epic poem, screenplay, or graphic novel, you’ve found the right place to let your story shine. If you love to read stories, tell stories, or experience stories, be a part of StoryCon! 

This free event consists of multiple sessions of authors, professors, and other experts sharing their secrets to successful story-telling. Past activities have included an open mic and a writing workshop session, providing space for students to share an original piece of writing with the group.  

StoryCon is open to high school juniors and seniors and current Huntington University students. More information about the next StoryCon will be available soon!
