The TribeTalks program is back again this coming year for all alumni to submit proposals for the talks, or the presentations, or the classes they want to offer in February.

This is a space for you to share your mastery, gain experience, expand your resume, and build the Tribe by putting together a short presentation about a subject you’re an expert in!

TribeTalks is a program based on the popular TED Talks format. It will be a series of three 15-minute talks presented by selected alumni that offer fresh perspectives and inspire us with unique approaches to the challenges writers face both on and off the page.

The submission window is open through May 31st. Just download the docs, fill out the proposal, and send it in to your friendly, neighborhood TribeTalks Coordinator, Joshua Essoe, at

We are looking forward to hearing from you and seeing this year’s amazing proposals!
