We’re excited to announce that the call for sessions for the next annual Read with Pride Northwest conference (previously known as Gay Romance Northwest) is open from now through Sunday, July 23, 2017!
Unlike previously years, this year we have two opportunities for session submissions. We have openings for panel discussions for the Read with Pride Northwest conference that will be held on Saturday, November 4, and also, openings for writer workshop sessions for Write with Pride, a half-day workshop geared towards writers that will be held on Friday, November 3. Both events will be held at the Seattle Public Library Central Branch, our home since the conference’s launch in 2013.
Interested in submitting a session for either Read with Pride Northwest or Write with Pride?
Check out our session submission guidelines!
All sessions must be submitted by Sunday, July 23.
Sessions will be selected in early August 2017, and notifications will be sent out then.
After sessions have been selected, we will open up remaining Attending Author spots for Read with Pride 2017.
If you are interested in being an attending author for Read with Pride, we strongly recommend submitting a session for either the Read with Pride conference on Nov. 4 or the Write with Pride workshop on Nov. 3. Attending author spots are opened up first to session leads and panelists, and remaining spots are opening up after that.
So much of Read with Pride’s past success has been built on session submissions. We would love for you to come share your ideas of what you’d like to see at our fifth annual conference this November. Come join us!
