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 do not have the background for this line of thought, but it might be interesting if there's something about Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and how that has influenced the works that came after her.

It also might be interesting to have a discussion about some of people's favorite monster stories - vampires, werewolves would be fine but perhaps looking for the monsters that are not so obvious.
