2015 Deadline: Call for Workshop Proposals Closes March 1, 2015

Calling all labyrinth enthusiasts! Do you have a burning desire to share your work? Need a little encouragement to go public with it? Now is the time to act! The request for presentations for this year’s Gathering will close on March 1, 2015.

Workshop Candolini

Picture it: Leading a workshop, lecture, or experiential exercise based on the creative and astounding things you’ve been doing with labyrinths! Come on, you know you love the spotlight, or at the very least can be encouraged to step into that divine glow. And what could be better than sharing with a wonderful bunch of fellow labyrinth lovers? Not much!

So, submit your proposals for workshops, lectures, posters and mini sessions, and join us at this year’s Annual Gathering, October 16-18, at Waycross Conference Center in Morgantown, Indiana.

The forms and process have been revised with the aim of making the experience of submitting a proposal easier and even more user friendly. You’ll see options to submit workshops, lectures, posters, and a new, shorter presentation category called "Mini Sessions." Each one will be reviewed "blind" by the selection committee, i.e. without the names of the presenters attached to them, which ensures that selections are made based on the quality of the proposal.

Similar to previous years, a short description (or "abstract") of each accepted presentation will also be featured on the TLS members-only website after the event. This provides presenters a way of gaining recognition for their work and offers members an opportunity to review presentations. Leaders of accepted presentations also have the option of submitting a PDF synopsis of PowerPoint slides for publication on the TLS members-only website after the Gathering.

We’re thrilled with the way this new process is evolving, excited to receive your proposals, and eager to see the brilliant innovations TLS members have been pioneering in the field of labyrinth work. So, please submit your presentations for review by the March 1, 2015 deadline.
