Shining Hearth staff signups are open!

Staff signups are now open for Shining Hearth. We are looking for people to volunteer to moderate chat, to run the schedule, and to provide technical support for those who may be having trouble using Discord, getting streaming working, etc. You can select only one of those or any combination. The form is available here and will remain open through November 19.

Presenter signups are now open for Shining Hearth! Presentations can be on any topic that would be of interest to elfae folk and can be in any format (lecture, panel, group discussion with all attendees, ritual/meditation, performance, demonstration, etc.). The form is available here and will remain open through December 31. If you would like to do a group presentation, choose one person to be the contact and only fill out the form once. All members of the group must be over 18.

Interested in presenting, but need inspiration for a topic? Check out last year’s schedule, or this compilation of workshop descriptions from various otherkin gathers.

Presenter signups close – December 31 (late signups may be accepted if space is available)
General registration – January 1, 2022 through March 16
Schedule posted – early February (tentative)
The gathering! – March 18-20, 2022

Presenter signups for Shining Hearth are still open! We’re up to four things planned and a few folks considering options. We are looking for about ten presentations total, so there’s plenty of room still in the schedule. Presentations don’t have to be a formal workshop; they can be roundtable discussion, a musical performance, even a craft demo – so long as the content is relevant to elfae folk. The form is available here and will remain open through December 31.

General registration for Shining Hearth is now open! The form is here.

We got enough presentations submitted to fill the schedule, but we would like to have a few backup workshops in case of presenters having to cancel. If you would be interested in being an alternate presenter, the form is still open here.

Looking for replacement staff and presenter

We’ve lost contact with one of our staff members who was also giving a presentation and are looking for replacements. You must be 18 years of age or older and have or be willing to create a Discord account. Other requirements:

Staff: Have duties of chat moderator, schedule runner (make sure next presenter is ready to go and give time warnings), and technical support (help with technical problems on Discord). Prefer if we can get all three (whether in one person or more), but schedule running is the most important. Must commit to being present on all three days of the event, Friday, March 18 through Sunday, March 20, and to checking the server for messages regularly between now and then. If interested, fill out the form here.

Presenter: Give a talk, discussion, demo, performance, etc. of approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour in length. Topics directly related to elves/fae/etc. are preferred. Topics of general interest to otherkind will also be considered. Must commit to this timeslot: Sunday, March 20, 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM Central Time (9:30 AM Pacific, 10:30 Mountain, 12:30 Eastern), to check in 30 minutes ahead of time on that day, and to checking the server for messages regularly between now and then. If interested, fill out the form here. (Skip the questions about picking a timeslot – you must commit to Sunday, March 20, 11:30 AM CDT.)

Registration for Shining Hearth will close on March 16th. Between staff, presenters, people still on the server from last year, and new registrations, we anticipate we might see around 50 people this year (!). If you’d like to join us, you can register here!
If you’ve never used Discord before, check out our beginners’ guide here (PDF).
