During my studies, in particular, I had a chance to test out ideas and approaches at several conferences and seminars. Those papers gave me a chance to formulate ideas, which had up to then only existed in my head. They also allowed me to develop and improve, which allowed me to take part in engaging panels and seminars even after I left university and became a freelance writer and critic.
Below, you can find a complete list of conferences and seminars which I took part in, from the first baby steps to larger platforms.
Please feel free to contact me if you feel I could be a good addition to your conference panel or your seminar/webinar.
