  • How would you like to participate? (workshop, panel discussion, reading, age group of the proposed presentation, in-person or online, etc.)
  • Please outline your idea for a session/event and whether you would like to present a workshop/talk in your own particular area of expertise or would be open to participating in an event with other successful contributors.
