About this event

  • 2 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

You’ve developed a great topic for a presentation, and your dream conference has just posted an open Call for Proposals. Yay! But – how does that work?? How do you let the organizers know that your talk is the perfect match for their event? How do you distill your complex and nuanced ideas into a pithy description and a few bullet points?

Conference proposal forms can feel daunting, so we’ll break down their requirements into understandable chunks, and tackle one at a time. And even better, we’ll do it in a way that builds you a reusable toolbox of proposal material – so you’ll have what you need for all kinds of conference and event proposals.

In this two-hour workshop, you will:

  • Learn a framework for writing talk descriptions and snippets for different uses
  • Figure out what details are necessary to include in your proposals, and which can be safely left behind
  • Practice writing a description in your own authentic voice
  • Bonus: you can use the same exercise we’ll learn to write your conference bio as well!

Please come with an idea for a talk you'd like to write a proposal for. It doesn't have to be complete, outlined, or even fully formed! But it should be something you feel excited about and wish you could share in a conference setting.

This workshop will include quiet time for solo work, small group sharing, and large group discussion, so please come ready to participate in all those!

Workshop Details:

We have always subsidized our community workshops to make them as accessible as possible. You'll notice there are two ticket tiers for this workshop. If you are able to pay the standard ticket price, we ask that you do so. If paying the standard price would make this workshop inaccessible to you, we encourage you to pay the reduced solo rate.

Upon registration, you will receive instructions on how to join the workshop. You will also be added to a calendar invite and will receive a final reminder 24 hours in advance.

This will be an interactive workshop. We ask you to take the call in a place where you can have your video on and speak openly. The workshop will not be recorded.
