Leading a Conference Workshop as a Guest Presenter

Participating in writing conferences, either as a panelist, lecturer, or as a workshop leader is a great way to get your name and book out in public and to network with other writers like you—especially when you are leading a conference workshop.

Being a presenter comes with tasks, but the challenge is not impossible. I’d like to offer you some  guidelines to help you be as successful as you can be to:

  • Respond to a presenters’ request for proposal,
  • Adhere to a list of conference presenter’s guidelines, and
  • Develop a workshop that keeps the promises you proposed – in the specified allotted time.<!–more–>

What would happen to the memoir conversation if…

  • …you took a moment to present this informative post to your friends and family by linking this article on your social media? Just a click. It’s so easy.
  • …you reposted this article on your own blog or website? It’s free and you’d both have some valuable content to boost your blog’s reputation and you would be providing your readers with valuable guidance. For the best procedure on how to do this, click here.

    I appreciated your outline, Madeline. I don’t do this very often but sometimes I find myself in front of people and I’ve forgotten some important support—like magic markers to write with on the flip charts. I’ll be saving this post and referring to it next time I do a presentation. Thanks.
