2023 M&M Workshop Proposals


Thank you so much for your interest in leading a workshop at the 2023 Moonlight & Magnolias Conference. Our goal is to provide a wide variety of workshops and panels that are fun and interesting for writers of all levels. To give yourself the best chance at selection, please make sure you fill out the form completely. You are also welcome and encouraged to submit more than one workshop concept.


This year, we will be offering Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced author tracks, to ensure that attendees are able to identify which sessions are likely to be of most value based on their career path.


Below are some suggested submission topics, which were curated from last year's survey results:

  • TOPICS: blurb writing, query letters, synopsis construction, scene and story structure, tools/resources, genre/tropes/themes, publishing wide v. Kindle Unlimited, collaboration, where to begin with website and social media

  • ADVANCED TOPICS: advanced editing techniques, advanced story crafting classes, production schedule tips and tricks, or other unique themes (example: Universal Fantasy or KDrama Cure)

Workshop submissions close MARCH 1st. All presenters will be notified by April 1st. A $50 stipend will be awarded to each selected workshop (The total will be split should there be multiple presenters).


Thank you for offering your time and expertise to the 2023 Moonlight and Magnolias conference.


Please note: each submission will receive thoughtful consideration, however we will not be able to accept every proposal.


Please read the following, then click at the bottom of this page and submit the proposal form, which includes uploading two separate files:

  • A headshot file, preferably in jpg or png format

    • If you have multiple presenters, upload a headshot for each presenter when each one is requested.

  • A document (Word, PDF, Google docs, or rtf format) containing the following:

    • An extended description of your workshop;

    • An outline of your workshop;

    • Why you think the workshop or panel would be a good fit for M&M.


  • If you have multiple presenters, the form will ask for contact info and a bio for each one.

  • Remember that the more information you provide about your workshop, the more likely that it will be seriously considered for inclusion in the conference. Missing information in the proposal form or the uploaded file may result in your workshop not being chosen.

  • You must be logged on to a Google account to be able to access the proposal form.  If you do not have a Google account and do not wish to create one, please contact the program director at for assistance.

  • If your workshop is selected, you will be required to register for the conference. You may not present a workshop without being a fully paid attendee.

  • Assuming you have prepared your documents ahead of time, expect this form to take a minimum of 10 minutes to fill out.

  • Contact if you have any questions or problems.
