“Ask Me Anything” Facilitator + Participant Call for Submissions
WANL wants to put you in an open forum and let the sparks fly. Our AMA is modelled after the popular Reddit trend of AMA: Ask Me Anything, where users have the opportunity to ask questions directly either live in the moment or by submitting a question in advance. WANL AMA’s will have a select number of questions prepared in advance, with room to take questions “off the floor.”
• The ideal candidate to facilitate an AMA would be a person with a deep knowledge of the local writing scene and is able to ask questions on the fly as needed. A journalistic background or relevant past interview experience is an asset.
• The ideal participant to answer these questions in the AMA would also have a vast wealth of knowledge and be willing to candidly chat about the local writing scene, as well as their own work. Preferably, the candidate will have some potentially new or newsworthy items to discuss, such as a new book, upcoming event, a work in progress, or something along those lines.
What to submit:
• a resume detailing your knowledge/expertise
• a comprehensive overview of the topic you feel qualified to discuss, and why
• any advance questions that you’d like to answer or ask during the panel
• any tech requirements or ideas
