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'd be interested to see a presentation on how female characters often associated with or labeled as monsters have been portrayed in artwork, cover art, etc. I was looking at different pictures of Furies last fall as I was working on NaNoWriMo and it was really interesting to see how they looked at different points of history. I'm sure there are several characters or character types that also have an interesting visual evolution!
