The 6th Annual Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) Writers’ Conference will be held on Saturday, March 11, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the CCA campus. The conference offers writing workshops taught by renowned speakers in a variety of subjects that include poetry, fantasy, journalism, screenwriting, college essay writing, romance, flash fiction, action, comics, horror fiction, and more. New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Mary E. Pearson will serve as the keynote speaker.

The CCA Writers’ Conference, the only free writing conference for high school students in the country, was established in 2012 with the goal of helping students to write, publish, and produce their own written work. It is organized by the Creative Writing Club, a student-led organization that encourages and supports creative writers on campus and throughout San Diego. Last year’s conference was attended by over 200 students from 24 high schools. Learn more at
