PROMO DAY 2009- call for Moderators and Workshop hosts

PROMO DAY! is an all day international online event for people in the writing industry. There are lots of new features for the 2009 event including workshops by experts in the industry.

I'm looking for moderators for both the workshops and the PROMO chatroom.

As a moderator of the PROMO chatroom you will be required to monitor the PROMO chatroom and make sure everyone is behaving themselves and try to keep 'conversation' flowing.

As a moderator of the WORKSHOP chatroom you will be assigned a workshop to moderate during the event. All workshops are one hour long. Your role will be to make sure the workshop runs smoothly. In most cases the workshop host will run the chatroom and format of the workshop. You will be needed to keep track of who asks questions and the order of questions asked and if needed remind the host to make sure nobody gets overlooked.

To thank you for your help as moderator you will be entitled to the following benefits:

* Bio, with photo, posted to PROMO DAY website with a link to your website/blog
* Bio, with photo and website link/contact details included in the PROMO DAY book (Official publication for the event which will be available for purchase from the website).
* A moderators certificate to keep for your files.

I'm looking for presenters with expertise in different areas to host workshops during the event. The topics I am interested in are:

* Marketing and Promotion
* Networking
* Technical Aspects (copyright, ISBNs etc...)
* Book cover design
* Websites
* Virtual tours
* Promotional Video's
* Press releases
* Book reviews
* Blogging

I will however consider other topics, so if you are interested in doing a workshop on a topic not listed please let me know.

All workshops are one hour long and will have an assigned moderator to help make sure the workshop runs smoothly (they will keep track of who asks questions and the order of questions asked and if needed remind you, to make sure nobody gets overlooked).

As a workshop host you will be required to:

* Give a presentation on your area of expertise and answer questions by participants during an hour long workshop which will take place in the WORKSHOP chatroom of the PROMO DAY website during the event.
* Supply a file on your area of expertise for the free downloads section. Files should be in either word or PDF format. Files can be of any length.

To thank you for your help as Workshop host you will be entitled to the following benefits:

* Bio, with photo, posted to PROMO DAY website with a link to your website/blog
* Bio, with photo and website link/contact details included in the PROMO DAY book (Official publication for the event which will be available for purchase from the website).
* A Workshop host certificate to keep for your files.

If you are interested in being considered for the role of Moderator or Workshop host please let me know what hours you will be available on the 9th May 2009 and in the case of moderators, which chatroom you would prefer to moderate.
