See you at Gen Con!
You people are awesome! In fact, I really wish I'd put up that post about Writing Women Friendly Comics sooner! In the very short time since it went up, I've had a number of fantastic women creators volunteer to participate in the panel. Some are people we didn't know were coming to Gen Con (be sure to tell us if you're coming to the con!), and others are folks that may come down just to be a part of the program. It sounds like even though we didn't have much luck on our own, thanks to all of you out there we can make a cool panel (and track) even better.
And if you were planning to contact us but hadn't, we'd still like to hear from you. Even if we can't get you involved this year, if the track does well enough, hopefully we can get you involved in 2016!
Long story short, it looks like we'll be able to get some cool women creators involved. More information is coming soon, so watch this space!
As always, let us know if you have any questions, and see you at the con!
We're very excited about the Writing Comics track at Gen Con this year. It's something I've wanted to put together for a very long time. After we posted the tracks and panelists, however, a few people said:
"Um - why aren't there any women on your Writing Women Friendly Comics panel?"
Excellent question! It's not how we would have normally done this sort of thing, so I figured I would fill everyone in.
