Apply to be a Speaker

The Southwest Actors Conference & Expo is actively accepting speaking proposals for the 2022 conference and if you’re an expert with an actor career lesson, hack, case study, or a bit of actor-jedi-wisdom to share - we want to hear from you!

We’re interested in beginner and advanced level talks.

To be considered for a speaking spot, please fill out the form below. We receive a lot of submissions and the process is highly competitive. Check out the tips below on how to get your session proposal noticed. You should expect a response by February 2020.

The Southwest Actors Conference and Expo does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, or military service. All individuals are encouraged to apply.

Be Concise

Please keep your description to the word count. Be concise but explain the importance of the topic and what detailed lessons you will teach. Write in the present tense and an active voice. Include 3-4 bullets of what someone will be able to do better or different because of your session.

No sales pitches

Your personal brand or story is less interesting than the awesome tips and tactics you have to share.



Attendees want to walk away with a plan of action. Be sure to include specific lessons you'll teach that aren't too generic or broad.

Limit the scope

In 30 minutes, you won't be able to cover everything about your topic. Instead, pick a specific useful aspect.
