Item Description

Bid now for a VIP package to the first-ever LA BinderCon, a conference for women and gender nonconforming writers of all kinds. LA Bindercon will be March 28 & 29, 2015, and this is your all-access pass, including exclusive invites to party with the presenters and organizers. Only a limited number of these passes will be available, so bid to snag yours now. 

Every year since 2009, the VIDA counts of bylines by gender have shown us that women and gender nonconforming writers continue to fall far short of equal representation in major magazines and literary journals. And the Women’s Media Center has found that women’s representation behind the scenes in film hasn’t increased in fifteen years: the percentage of female film writers dropped from 13 percent to 10 between 1998 and 2013. 

In response to these dismal statistics of gender disparity in the media, Out of the Binders, Inc. formed in the summer of 2014, with a plan to increase the diversity of voices in the media and literary arts by empowering women and gender non-conforming writers through biannual professional development conferences. In October 2014, almost five hundred women came to our inaugural BinderCon in New York City, an event hailed by The Huffington Post  as “a successful debut of a new model of female community.” In 2015, we’ll hold our first west coast conference, in Los Angeles.
