WordPlay 2019 Speaker Submissions
Thanks for your interest in participating as a speaker for WordPlay 2019! WordPlay is the Hand Eye Society's free festival celebrating the most interesting uses of writing and words in contemporary games. Each year there is a curated game showcase, talks by creators about the craft, and ways for the public to learn about making games. This year, WordPlay will be happening at the Toronto Reference Library over two days on Nov 9th and 10th, 2019.

To be considered as a speaker for WordPlay, please fill out this form in full by 11:59 pm Eastern Time on Sept 1st, 2019. Your proposal will be reviewed by the WordPlay programming committee and you'll be informed of their decision by mid-Sept, 2019.

Some things to keep in mind:
- Proposals should be generally based around the subject of interactive fiction and writing in contemporary games.
- Don't worry if your talk proposal sounds weird and/or wacky. We like that kind of thing too!
- We encourage slides and visuals, and there is a big screen projector available at the venue.
- With our new two-day format, we're planning on having one day of talks and one day of workshops and other interactive programming

Talks
- In general, talks should run ~20-25 minutes long. However...
- Feel free to propose microtalks (5-10 min), fireside chats, panels, whatever you can think of, that doesn't necessarily fit into the standard talk format.

Workshops
- Workshops tend to run about 1-2 hours long. But...
- We're open to other types of interactive programming like round-tables, interactive game playing/performances, game critiques, anything that involves the participants directly.

Artist fees of MINIMUM $80 CAD will be paid for 1-hour talks and workshops. Limited travel assistance may be provided for international speakers, depending on proposals and available funding (max $500 CAD).
