Why should you think about proposing a workshop for the conference?

The deadline is fast approaching to submit a proposal for the 2018 Women Writing the West Conference.
Anyone interested in submitting a proposal has through February 20 to send in the quick paperwork to the program co-chairs, Jane Kirkpatrick and Gail Jenner.
Have you considered the value you could bring to the conference with your particular area of expertise? We hope you will.
Maybe you’ve done extensive research about researching historical figures. Perhaps your skill set includes the best or latest social media practices.
Teaching a workshop is more than just sharing information with others. There’s benefits for you, too.
Consider what teaching a workshop might give back to you:
  • Professional development.
  • Digging deeper into what you already know and gaining additional knowledge.
  • Meeting people you might otherwise not have the opportunity to interact with at conference.
  • Stretching the boundaries of your comfort zone (especially for introverts!).
  • The feeling of accomplishment from joining forces to create the best possible conference for attendees.
  •  If you are planning to sell books at the conference, people are more likely to pay attention to your title if they’ve had the privilege of hearing you present and know you took the time to prepare a presentation.
If you’re interested in submitting a proposal for a workshop, you’ll find the form on the Women Writing the West website here.
