SESSION GUIDELINES

Engaging professionals who not only possess practical knowledge and experience in their proposed topic(s), but who are also passionate, confident, and generous instructors.  

New presenters! We're always looking for new voices and we want to hear from you. Sessions that run the gamut from teaching the fundamentals of craft and getting published, to delving deep into advanced subject areas (WDC attendees are at various stages in their careers).  

Quality craft instruction is always at the core of our programming, but we are also looking for sessions covering the business of being a writer and managing a sustainable career, as well as instructional sessions about tools and services writers use (e.g., software, websites, email, self-publishing, etc.)

All sessions are 60 minutes long and should include time for audience interaction via Q&A, during or at the end of the session.

NOTE: We cover travel costs and hotel stay during the conference for our presenters, as well as the opportunity to promote relevant books and services to attendees through a variety of channels, including an on-site bookstore. 

Diversity is important to us and we are looking to develop an inclusive program that represents all genres and publishing preferences, and invites participation from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, and sexual orientation. All are encouraged to submit proposals, and please feel free to share this opportunity within your own networks to help expand our reach. 

If you have any questions, please contact ajones@aimmedia.com and/or tsferra@aimmedia.com.
