Time to Brainstorm!  
A few folks chatted last weekend about their ideas for programming. Please feel free to use this post to...

1) Give away ideas that you can't use yourself.

2) Adopt topics that you'd like to propose yourself.

3) Seek out co-presenters for proposals (all presentation types except roundtables, which should have only one moderator).

We'll post a roundup next week, if you don't think of something right away. Remember, nearly all programming is presented by Sirens attendees, and we encourage you to take an active role in addressing the idea of "monsters" and women in fantasy.

Have questions? We're happy to help. You can leave them in the comments or send them to (programming at sirensconference.org). You can also write to (help @ sirensconference.org) with general questions.

I had an interesting discussion with someone the other day about whether portrayals of women in fiction need to be positive and/or responsible in order to be feminist. (The book in question was Dia Reeves's Bleeding Violet.) I don't have the women's studies chops to present this, but I'd love to see someone else do so. :)

I'd also really love to see someone take on the concept of the monstrous feminine. I know just enough to be dangerous, but it's so applicable to this year's theme!
