Author Spotlight Request Form

GCLS Annual Conference

July 5-9. 2017 –Crowne Plaza O'Hare

Author Spotlight Expectations 

  • Author Spotlight sessions will be moderated and timed.
  • Five or six authors will share the “spotlight” for 50 minutes.
  • The session will follow this format: 1 minute greeting/intro by moderator; 5 minutes per author to introduce and read selection; remaining 20-25 minutes for Q&A from moderator and audience
  • The 5 minutes allotted to each author includes the introduction of her selection.
  • A timer will signal each author when she has 2 minutes, 1 minute, and 30 seconds remaining.
  • If necessary, the moderator will interrupt an author who has not heeded the timer’s signals.  Thus, all authors should time their introductions and readings prior to the conference.
  • NOTE: If there are fewer participants in a spotlight session, the moderator may amend the time limit and allow for more than 5 minutes per reader; however, the increase will be uniform for all participants.

Other Information

  • The schedule for Author Spotlight will be posted in the conference schedule in April.
  • Please direct any questions you might have to ann.roberts@goldencrown.org
