Announcing Ticket Sales, Grant Program, and Call for Proposals Reminder¶
Greetings, documentarians! Today we’re happy to announce that tickets are on sale now, and to remind you that our Call for Proposals is still open.
Following the success of the 2020 virtual conference, we look forward to more opportunities to bring the community together virtually and to share the wonderful energy with each other wherever you are in the world.
If there is something you’d really like to see a talk about this year, submit a proposal for it or refer someone else who would be good!
Get your ticket for the conference¶
The Prague conference will be held online on Oct 3-5, 2021. The full event website is live, with some preliminary details, and we’ll be filling in more as it gets closer.
Tickets are on sale now, so go ahead and register for your ticket now! Even though our capacity is more flexible due to the virtual event platform, we might still sell out to make sure we’re providing a manageable event size for our attendees, as always.
Similar to last year’s virtual conference, we’re going to keep as much as possible of the spirit of the event alive:
- Excellent single track of pre-recorded presentations with live moderated Q&A after each talk
- Writing Day sessions
- Unconference sessions
- A virtual hallway track
- A social event of some kind, bring your own beverage and snacks :)
We really want to make sure that folks can get value from being at the event at the same time, and we think it will be another great year of helping our community connect.
We updated our grant program application to take into account the virtual format of the event. We’re excited to be able to offer free tickets to a larger number of people, since there are now minimal other costs to attend the event.
You can apply by August 15, 2021 on our website.
Submit your talk by June 30th¶
There are still a few weeks left to submit your proposal! Check out the Call for Proposals page for more details about what we are looking for.
And if you already have an idea but you’re having a hard time getting your proposal to come together, you can always ask for feedback on the Write the Docs Slack. The community is there to help!
We’ll then be reviewing all the talk proposals, and will be contacting everyone who submitted a proposal by July 16, 2021.
Support our community by sponsoring¶
Every year we are fortunate to have the support of like-minded organizations and communities, who believe in the collaborative and welcoming community spirit and help us make our events great.
We have published our virtual sponsorship prospectus for the conference, and are open for new sponsorship inquiries.
We will still run the job fair, helping documentarians and organizations connect with each other. Check out the sponsorship prospectus for more details and to reserve your spot today.

Looking forward to seeing you all in our virtual space!
