    If you would like to share samples of your work to discuss, they should be submitted via email by December 6th. We will no longer be offering printed packets.

    This program will not be recorded. 

    Guidelines for DMPL Virtual Programs 

    • All lines will be muted upon entry to the meeting. This makes it easier for everyone to hear. 
    • Please double check to make sure your video/audio is working before the meeting. 
    • Raise your hand or request in the chat if you would like to be called on.  
    • One person per video/microphone.  
    • Keep yourself muted until you speak. The host may mute you if this guideline is not followed.  
    • Be mindful of your video and what can be seen in your background. 
    • Do not post links in the chat.
    • Participants are expected to follow the guidelines for virtual programs. Disruptive or disrespectful behavior may result in removal from the program. 
    • The meeting will be closed 5 minutes after the end of the program.
