How to propose a panel for GeekGirlCon

Want to know more about what kind of programming you can expect from GeekGirlCon? Want to start working on your awesome, female-friendly panel?

Well here’s How to propose a panel for GeekGirlCon!

GeekGirlCon will feature programming on topics ranging from geek lifestyle issues, to the sciences to popular culture.

We are seeking proposals for panels and presentations on topics such as, but not limited to:

· Geeky parenting and dating

· Women in science, math and technology

· Women characters and creators in comic books, literature, film, and television

· Pop culture scholarship

· Women in gaming

· Women in horror

· Diversity in genre

· Crafty businesses

· Cosplay

· Women in Stunt Work

· Women writers (and men writing great geeky female characters)

· Women in science fiction and fantasy

· Fandom and community

· Women’s history in geeky popular culture, science, and technology

To be considered for acceptance proposal submissions must reflect the mission of the convention – to promote, celebrate, educate, mentor, encourage and empower the female geek. We are interested in presentations, screenings, readings, and round table discussions from women and men in geeky professions: science fiction, fantasy, horror, action, gaming, science, anime, roller derby, cosplay, comic books, technology, B-movies, LARPing, and video games. There must be an understanding that these topics be addressed with a women-centric and woman-positive focus and with attention to issues of diversity.

GeekGirlCon is committed to representing women geeks of all ages, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, creeds, physical and mental abilities, and familial statues. Proposals must reflect a commitment to this as well.

We will be accepting submissions soon.

  1. Hello,

    I would very much like to participate in the Women In Horror panel.

    I write for HorrorHound Magazine and have done so since issue 2. I’ve written for BloodyDisgusting.com as their first fiction reviewer and other sites online. I also am editor of Fangirl Magazine, an online webzine.

    I recently had a short story published in the anthology Uncanny Allegories as well as written the introduction to Isolation, another anthology. Currently I’m working on a new book that will be a history of horror on television.

    I think it’s important that women in horror be represented as more than just the typical “boobs and bimbos” and the “victim.” We are still looking for respect in that regard and those of us with the knowledge and talent to show that are legion.

    Please feel free to contact me regarding this. As said, I’d very much like to participate.
