You Can Now Register for Werk It 2017



Werk It is described as “a women’s podcast festival”. This year, it will take place on October 3-5 in Los Angeles, California. Registration is now open.

Werk It is for women in all stages of their careers currently working in or hoping to break into audio and digital media. Podcasters are welcome. Women who are not a podcaster right now are welcome, too. The daytime sessions of Werk It, including the Podcast Bootcamp, are created by and for women only. Men are welcome to purchase tickets to the tapings in the evenings.

Werk It offers a limited number of scholarships in order to ensure a robust mix of participants such as students, freelancers, and nonprofit employees who would otherwise be unable to attend. Scholarships will cover the cost of the sessions. Recipients will be responsible for travel expenses and tickets to the live tapings. Those who want to apply must do so before March 1, 2017.

Right now, Werk It is seeking pitches for Session ideas. Sessions typically run 45-60 minutes and will be recorded and edited in the Werk It podcast feed. Some are also streamed and shared as video.

When pitching a Session, consider the audience. Werk It attracts women in various stages of their careers and from around the world, all looking to meet others in the field and be challenged and inspired, and to walk away with new ideas.

In the past, Sessions have covered vocal fry, reporting vs. storytelling, social media and marketing, interviewing skills, sound design, talent management, career advice, editing, and more. They encourage you to think outside of the conference box. Anything to do with producing audio while female is fair game.

Is far as the festival do each of us need to participate if we all can’t come up with the funds can one of us just attend-I would rather all 3 but I don’t know if it’s possible.

    1. Danielle,
      I am happy that you found this article to be informative. Unfortunately, I cannot answer your questions.

      I recommend that you visit the Werk It website: https://www.werkitfestival.com/#about and take a look at it. Their FAQ might answer some of your questions. It also shows an email that you can use to contact the women who are in charge of Werk It. Good luck!
