submit your panel or workshop!

We are dedicated to cross-pollination between diverse storytellers in a community-driven environment focused on collaboration and knowledge sharing.

We are open to panel proposals from writers and industry professionals (managers, agents, editors, publicists, producers, and others) who offer unique, DEEP insights and expertise. We are particularly interested in panels that address the intersection of storytelling (in all its ways!) and AI, Afrofuturism, genre and medium melding, new takes on reality, and panels by, from, and about the queer community.

Submissions via Submittable

Our panels and intimate workshops will run either 60 or 75 minutes, with one moderator and up to three panelists. Selections will be made in May 2024.

Panelists are the lifeblood of our conference, and so all panelists attend for free. You may be on 1-2 panels.

I once asked this literary agent what kind of writing paid the best.  He said, “Ransom notes."
