Book Boss Incubator

The Book Boss Incubator will help youth write and sell their own “best-selling” children's books.Students will have a unique opportunity to practice and improve their writing and literacy skills while learning the business of book-selling and self-publishing. In collaboration, Storytime Village and SocialPreneur Lab will offer a series of 12 workshops that will guide youth through all phases of book development: writing, illustration, publishing, marketing, and selling. In each workshop, to design literary works, youth will receive one-on-one mentorship from volunteer writers and illustrators.

We are accepting 20 exceptional students to participate in the Book Boss Incubator. These students will become real-life student authors and entrepreneurs. They will complete all the workshops, participate in a book signing at the Kansas Children’s Literacy Conference & Festival on October 28th, and keep all the earning they make from selling their own original children’s book. Requirements: Student must be in the 3rd and 4th grade (there may be a few exceptions).
