See you at ClexaCon March 3-5!

ClexaCon 2017

I’m excited to share that I’ll be heading to ClexaCon with my writing partner and colleague Emily London March 3-5!

ClexaCon 2017 is the launch of a con that I hope will last for quite some time, inspired by the

ClexaCon provides a platform to build community, bringing together a diverse group of LGBTQ fans and content creators from around the world.

Emily and I will present two panels together: Girls Love 101: A Primer on Yuri and Shoujo-Ai Anime & Manga along with Lez Read! LGBTQ Women in Science Fiction & Fantasy Books. We’re really excited to present both of these for a variety of reasons, not least because both of us regularly read and review titles that fit both panels for Girls in Capes: we originally met in Rosemont’s MA Publishing program, and Emily is a bookseller who specializes in children’s and young adult books.

I’ll also moderate a third panel on Using Fan Power for Good. Based loosely on the panel I moderated at Flame Con, this panel will discuss how different people used their dissatisfaction with their fandoms to create positive forces.

Finally, if you’re interested in learning more about how I launched and currently run Girls in Capes, you can come to one of two workshops I’ll be teaching: Fan Blogging 101 and Fan Blogging 201. These will be skill development courses that will teach you how to choose a blogging platform and create an editorial calendar (101) and best practices to expand your blog’s reach through in-person and online outreach (201).

You can drool over the rest of the ClexaCon programming here, and you can also follow ClexaCon on Facebook and Twitter.
