Workshop Submission Process

Building the 2015 schedule.

Epic Skill Swap is about… swapping skills! Our schedule is made up of dozens of workshops taught by community members. Topics run the gamut from how to run for office to how to make yogurt. If you’re excited to teach it, we’re pretty sure people will be excited to learn it! You don’t need to be an expert in your skill to teach it, but we do encourage you to look over our resources for workshop leaders before you submit your proposal.

Every year, we build the Epic Skill Swap schedule through a participatory process. You can request workshops that you would like to take and propose workshops that you would like to teach through our skill submission website. Here’s how it works:

We’re using a google form for workshop submission this year!  If you want to propose a workshop, please submit your proposal before May 31st so we have time to build the schedule (though don’t worry, there will also be some open slots for last-minute additions!):

  • Please check out the resources for workshop leaders before writing your proposal.

  • To submit a workshop proposal, fill out this form!  Within a day or two, we’ll move your workshop description into the master workshop list so others can see it.

  • You can add workshop requests to the same master workshop document – feel free to comment or upvote other requests as well!  Head here if you want workshop ideas.

  • If there’s a workshop proposal or request you’re particularly excited about, feel free to add an emoji below the description or make a brief comment using the google docs comment feature.
