Our convention brings authors and readers together each year for a full three-day event that will create great memories and opportunities to meet all of your fangirl/fanboy needs. Penned Con is designed to give readers plenty of time to hang out with your favorite authors in a laid back setting, an opportunity to learn from bestselling authors, discover new to you books, and to have FUN!

Penned Con is not your "normal" convention. Here's a taste of what you will experience when you attend:

1 day master-class workshops & panels

2 Keynote Speakers

2 full days of book signings

Workshops led by industry professionals

Author/Reader Games

Free Swag Table

DJ Party

Charity Raffles and Silent Auction

And more!

100% of the profits from Penned Con go to Action for Autism a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization based in St. Louis who work to provide the therapies and schooling needs to local autistic children. Your attendance at Penned Con helps to change children's lives.
