Speak at the Northwest Tarot Symposium! Workshops are held Friday afternoon/evening and all day Saturday and Sunday. We are currently accepting presentation proposals. There are three tracks for the symposium and we are looking for topics that fit into each of these:
Novice Track – Learner / Beginner Topics – this track includes all of the beginning topics, special interest, deck/system specific, general divination, etc.
Adept Track – Intermediate / Advanced Topics – and this one’s for the those that want the next level and all “beyond basics” topics, etc.
Master Track – Professional, Tarot / Oracle Deck Creators and Author Topics – all topics related to creating decks, writing books, the creative process, reading professionally, how-to, business resources, etc.
We have two types of classes offered for 2019: Lecturess (PowerPoint presentations for up to 65 attendees) and Workshops (hands-on activity based classes, limited to 20 attendees).
PowerPoint Lecture Presentations: These classes are focused on lecture topics and the rooms will be equipped with a screen and projector. A classroom style layout is used with tables and chairs. We highly recommend including activities and hand-outs in the lecture style presentations, but that may not be the primary focus. There are three classrooms set up for this type of presentation.
Hands-on Activity Workshops: This room is setup for group activities and will NOT include a screen and projector. This type of class is focused on hands-on activities such as exchanging tarot readings, learning card layouts, creative projects, games, and other forms of interactive learning. This is a boardroom set up with one large table and chairs and is LIMITED to 20 attendees.
All submissions are juried in to ensure a wide variety in topics. Presentation lengths are 80 minutes, please keep this in mind when submitting your workshop for consideration. You may submit multiple presentations and/or class types (lecture and/or workshop) We also strongly encourage hand-out materials to accompany your class.
Compensation: Presenters will receive free entry to the conference (this does NOT include the Friday Extension or Monday Extension), and a small presenter fee.
Please use this form to submit your presentation proposal for the Northwest Tarot Symposium.
