Call for workshop proposals
Mediterranean Editors and Translators (MET) invites proposals for full-length workshops (three hours) and minisessions (90 minutes) for inclusion in its pre-conference workshop programme.
Workshops are an important part of MET’s continuing professional development activities and should respond to our association’s broad interest in helping language professionals improve the quality of their services and their ability to respond to clients’ diverse needs.
Workshop topics should be relevant to our members (see here for a description of who we are) and should have a substantial hands-on component.
To submit a proposal, please send an abstract of no more than 800 words and a short biography (50-100 words) to MET’s CPD chair. It should briefly describe the what, why and how of your workshop as indicated in the MET workshop submission template. Please also provide an informative title.
If you would like to discuss the suitability of your proposal before sending in your abstract, please feel free to write to MET's CPD chair. You can also explore the scope of topics covered in past workshops and the content and style of abstracts on the All workshops page of the website.
Proposals are peer reviewed and new workshops must be piloted before they can be scheduled for a conference.
Please note that MET is a knowledge-sharing and peer-training network and encourages submissions from both seasoned and novice workshop facilitators with expertise to share.
Proposals should be submitted in the format indicated in the MET workshop submission template.
Host a workshop
MET welcomes proposals to host our workshops in cities where MET members are based or where there is an opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise.
