Interested in being on Readercon's program? Know someone we should invite? Tell us! We're accepting applications and suggestions for Readercon 24, now through December 1.

Your email should include:

* Why the person you're suggesting would be a good program participant for Readercon (which includes good panel behavior as well as relevant knowledge).
* Why the person is uniquely interesting and awesome.
* What sorts of program items they'd be good on. (Feel free to use specific examples: "When I was at the discussion of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, I found myself really missing my friend the Shelley scholar...")

Your email might also include:

* A brief (brief!) paragraph of relevant background information.
* Links to things the person has written.
* A pitch for a talk, discussion, event, or other program item.

Really don't bother with:

* A full CV, resume, or biography.
* Anything that looks like a form letter. (Yes, this happens.)
* Offers to bribe us, even in jest.

We explicitly encourage applications from and recommendations of women, QUILT*BAG folks, people of color, people with disabilities, and other members of minority groups. Diverse voices make for better conversations.

Send your applications and recommendations to program@readercon.org. Thanks for helping us to make Readercon even better!
