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.

How about a discussion on the various stories of Beauty and the Beast? It seems to be one of the frequently re-told fairy tales -- what's the allure of this fairy tale as compared to others?

Also, what elements of a story make it "Beauty and the Beast like" -- for instance, my sister thinks that Anne Bishop's Sebastian is a Beauty and the Beast story, but it's told from the guy's point of view and has no physical change in its conclusion.
