Where: The College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center, 3501 University Blvd E, Hyattsville, MD 20783

What: We are looking for workshops on poetry, nonfiction, memoir, fiction, children’s, screenwriting/playwriting, marketing, legal, financial, publicity, social media. Each workshop will be 50 minutes in duration.

Compensation: We are excited to announce that we will pay presenters $100.00. We were not able to offer an honorarium in previous years. You will be provided with a space in the MWA Conference Bookstore to display and sell your books. In addition, you are welcome to attend other workshop programs on the day of your presentation.

Submission instructions:

Please submit your proposal to [email protected] with the subject line "Workshop Proposal: [Title]" in the following format:

  1. Title
  2. Brief Summary of the Workshop (1-2 paragraphs)
  3. Presenter’s Bio
  4. Intended Audience
  5. A/V Needs

We are seeking fresh and new material. Our members are looking for cutting edge information and would be disappointed if they were to receive the same workshop that may have been presented at another conference or chapter meeting. Therefore, we request that you do not propose a workshop that you have presented in the last two years.

Consider sending your proposal submission early rather than later. Proposals will be reviewed by committee and we will follow up with you with any questions and clarification that we may need.

Please contact: [email protected] if you have any questions.

We look forward to receiving your submission!
