Can You Write a Story in a Bag?

Are you ready for Story In A Bag, one of our most popular programming items?

The challenge, should you choose to accept it: Write a story in less than an hour, using random prompts you’ve drawn at random from a bag. It doesn’t matter if you are a published writer, a frustrated writer, a closet writer, or a writer-in-training: anyone can participate in ConQuesT’s Story In A Bag contest.

Bring your favorite writing tool! We’ll be doing two sessions on Saturday morning.

Age divisions for 2017:

  • Young Fan: age 12 and younger
  • Young Adult: age 13-16
  • Adult: age 17 and older

Can you buy a membership without Paypal? YES!

We’ve been asked if there’s a way to buy a ConQuesT membership without a Paypal account. The answer? Of course there is! After you add your memberships to the shopping cart on our registration page, you’ll see two buttons: an orange one labelled “Paypal Checkout” and a gray one labelled “Check Out”. Use the gray one to pay with a credit card. If you need to pay the old fashioned way, send your check to our mailing address on the Contact page.
