Readercon program participant application/suggestion form
This form is for applying, or suggesting someone else, to be a program participant at Readercon. Our application cycle runs December 1 through November 30. Applications received by November 30, 2018 will be considered for Readercon 30 in 2019.

You can use this form to apply on your own behalf, or to suggest someone for us to invite. Feel free to suggest people you don't personally know; just tell us why you think they'd be an asset to Readercon. If you're suggesting someone you know, please get their permission BEFORE filling out this form. Even better, ask them to fill the form out themselves.

Anything else we should know about this person?
Readercon is committed to diversity in its program; we believe a wide range of voices makes for better conversation. If you would like us to take this person's race, ethnicity, national origin, sex, gender, religion or lack of religion, sexual or relationship orientation, age, or other characteristics into consideration when we build our program, here's the place to tell us. You can also just tell us more about what makes them awesome, or skip this question entirely.
