Have you ever wanted to submit a conference proposal but didn't know where to start? Join NYC PyLadies for an evening of proposal brainstorming!

PyGotham is NYC's very own annual Python conference and is a great place for both first time and veteran speakers. The goal is to get you thinking about potential talk topics and how to construct a proposal that will make the organizers sing with joy!

The first part of the evening will be a discussion about what makes a good proposal and how to brainstorm one. The second part of the evening, we'll break into small groups and draft up our very own proposals, with a little time at the end for sharing our proposals with the group.

Submit your talks here: https://www.papercall.io/pygotham-2018
