CALL FOR WORKSHOPS AND SEMINAR PITCHES
We may have invited guests, but the GenreCon program only runs because dozens of writers, artists, and industry professionals volunteer their time to the discussion panels and workshop/seminar programs that run across the weekend. If you’d like to be involved in the 2017 conference, are currently taking pitches for the seminar/workshop program that runs through the weekend. If you’re interested in running a seminar or workshop over the GenreCon weekend, send us an expression of interest that includes the topic, rough outline of your workshop, any resources you’d require, and your CV. Email your expression of interest to GenreCon (firstname.lastname@example.org) with GenreCon Workshop : Your Workshop Title in the subject line.
Pitches should be suitable for up to 30 participants, as demand for workshops is high across the weekend. Please note that GenreCon caters to a wide range of genre writers, so workshops catering to topics of interest to multiple genres will be given preference.
We are looking to fill one hour and two hour workshop/seminar slots. Workshops are free for attendees, and accepted tutors will be paid in our eternal adoration and complimentary GenreCon registration. We’ll be taking workshop applications until March 31st, 2017.
