UPDATE (12/4/15): Our call for proposals for HippoCamp 2016 is closed. We’re sorry you missed our window! We received almost triple the amount of proposals submitted for the 2015 event. We’re absolutely thrilled that so many writers and publishing professionals want to be involved.
We continue to get questions about how to speak at HippoCamp 2016, so we decided to update this page with some information about the programming process: If you’re interested in participating in future conferences (maybe you just heard about us for the first time?) be sure to sign up for our newsletter (bottom of site) and/or follow us on social media so that you don’t miss next year’s call. Like most professional development conferences, we plan the programming many months in advance. Typically, we open for break-out session submissions in late August and stay open through the fall, and then we announce the line-up when tickets go on sale in December.
One of the best parts about attending industry conferences is networking and learning with and from peers. The majority of HippoCamp’s Saturday schedule will be filled with concurrent sessions in three tracks—which, by the way, align with our three-fold mission—presented by your fellow attendees.
We are accepting presentation proposals for 45-minute sessions in our three tracks:
New this year, we’re also having a Flash Round where eight to 10 speakers share a nugget of knowledge in five minutes. We’re looking for proposals for those as well!
Note: We are not looking for panel or workshop proposals; breakout session and lightning round only, please.
Submit a proposal by
November 15, 2015. We’ll accept proposals on a rolling basis through late November.
