CFP Reminder & Ticket Sales Open

CFP Reminder & Ticket Sales Open

Happy New Year, fellow documentarians!

Now that we’ve crossed the threshold into 2018, the Portland Write the Docs conference is suddenly feeling much closer! Our call for proposals closes next Wednesday, and tickets for the conference are officially on sale. Read on for more details on both!

Submit your talk by Wednesday

With the deadline for submissions coming up on Wednesday, January 10th at midnight PST, there’s just a few days left to propose a talk for Write the Docs Portland!

If you’re interested or already working on pitching a talk, make sure you review the full call for proposals. And if you’ve already got an idea, but you’re having a hard time getting your proposal to come together, you can always ask for feedback on the WTD Slack. The community is there to help!

As always, we’re eagerly looking forward to your submissions! We’ll be reviewing all the talk proposals later this month, and announcing the full conference schedule in February.

Get your ticket for the conference

The Portland conference will be returning to the Crystal Ballroom on May 6-8, 2018. The event website is up, with some preliminary details, and we’ll be filling in more, as it gets closer. We’re already excited to see what this year has in store!

If you’re excited too, it might interest you to know that ticket sales are now live! For the last several years the conference has sold out, so it doesn’t hurt to buy early.

We’d like to thank Google for coming on board as our first big sponsor for the conference. If your company would be interested in sponsoring, check out our prospectus for details on the different packages and drop us a line at

One small change to make note of – we’re switching up conference swag this year! Instead of our traditional t-shirts, your ticket will include a fresh new rendition of branded WTD swag. Stay tuned for more details!

Looking forward to seeing y’all in Portland!

The Write the Docs Team
