Northern Voice 2012 Wants Your Speaker Submission
Coming to Northern Voice 2012? Do you have an awesome topic for a speaker presentation or panel all ready to go? Then send it in by April 1, 2012 and you could have the chance to share your wit and wisdom with bloggers, tweeps, creative storytellers and an assortment of cool geeks and non-geeks.
If you've never presented or never attended previous Northern Voice conferences, you may be wondering what sort of presentation we're looking for. This conference is about personal voice and it's aimed at non-professionals. We've had presentations on ethics and the social web, how to edit Wikipedia articles, the tasty rewards of food blogging, the gender divide of parenting blogs, propagandizing online, awesome-izing your podcast and many more aspects of digital expression.
We don't want to stifle your creativity by providing too many guidelines and we would also point out that if a presentation was successful in the past, that's no guarantee we'll be looking for a similar presentation this year. If your presentation topic sounds completely different from something we've done before, that could be a very good thing when it comes time to judge; we want our conference to evolve and that's only going to happen if we get innovative topics to discuss.
Caveats aside, feel free to have a look at the presentation topics from 2011 and 2010. We'll be going through all of the presentations and will start contacting chosen presenters by April 15. Good luck! And if you know anyone else who might be interested in presenting or attending Northern Voice, share this article! Cheers.
