If you read last week’s announcement, you’ll know that we’re putting on a new Open Mic event on July 8th at the Market Theater in Seattle (7pm-9pm).
The first 20 talk submissions we receive for the open mic will automatically be accepted to go up on stage on the night.
Submissions are open – currently 6 slots available (last updated 6/17 1pm). If you act soon you can be on our stage. Scroll down for details.
If you’re more partial to being an audience member, you can buy a $5 ticket for the event right now by clicking here.
How do I submit my talk?
For the Ignite Open Mic, we want to see 20 speakers giving 3 minute talks. Each talk will follow a Ignite format. Slides will still change automatically every 15 seconds, meaning you need to include a 12 slide PowerPoint presentation with your submission.
To become one of our 20 speakers, send us an email at email@example.com with the following included:
- Your full name. (E.g. Major Tom)
- The title of your talk. (E.g. Being a Space Oddity)
- A short description of what your talk is about. (E.g. I’ll tell a story about the time I went into space in a rocket and then did a space walk.)
- Your completed PowerPoint slideshow for the event: this should be 12 slides long and in PPT format. We’ve created a handy template you can use to start you off.
If you make it into the first 20 submissions, we’ll send you a reply within a few days to confirm that you’re going up on stage. Please assume when you submit that you’ll be doing a talk. (So make sure you’re free on the evening of July 8th.)
Being a speaker will get you free access to the open mic. It will also be a great opportunity to wow a supportive audience and the Ignite organizers. Most important of all, you’ll have a whole lot of fun.
We’re looking forward to seeing your submissions!
