Please Note:  “Author Spotlight” was previously titled “Author Reading-Chat”.

Author Spotlights are 50 minute sessions where 5 authors are "Spotlighted".  


  • Moderator does a BRIEF intro (1 min)
  • Each author has 5 minutes to do a reading (including any intro).  
  • The remaining 20 minutes is spent in Q&A with the audience.  
  • The moderator will ensure that authors stick to their 5 minute limit, by interrupting and thanking the author and leading the applause. (Please do not ignore or argue with them in front of the audience!)
  • The moderator will manage the Q&A to ensure all authors have the opportunity to respond to questions.
  • Please be fair, and share the opportunity with all the authors in your group.

We have limited spotlights available, so we will accept 5 more authors than we have openings for.  The last five authors to sign up will go on a waiting list, in case others have to withdraw.  This means that those on the wait list may not have their name in the program, if the person they are replacing withdrew after the programs went to the printer.



Author Spotlights will be added to the schedule in early Spring. As there are so many applicants, we cannot respond to each person. Therefore please check the Conference Schedule under Events / 2016 Conference to see if you were assigned a spot.
