EDIT: This opportunity is now over - the panel has been restructured. However, if you’re interested in working with libraries/literary festivals, drop me a line anyway at email@example.com - I will be looking to make this sort of thing happen again in future, hopefully with better compensation
I’m preparing a panel for a small local literary festival in Brimbank, in the northwest of Melbourne, Australia. The panel is on interactive storytelling: tabletop roleplaying, LARP, and IF.
The panel runs from 2-3:30 on Saturday 10 September at Sydenham Library and would consist of 3 10-minute presentations on (and plugs for) each of the above forms of storytelling, to be presented by the panellists from that particular medium, and then an hour of panel discussion and audience Q&A. There will also be a local IF meetup around the same time
I have a choice-based IF author (Felicity Banks) and was hoping to also be able to include someone with experience in writing parser IF, preferably a published author. There is a small honorarium - probably in the range $70-$120. (Sorry it’s not more - this festival is run by a local government-funded library service with limited funds.) Obviously this won’t cover travel costs from very far away, hence me looking for someone local
