Coyote Con is a virtual convention run by Drollerie Press. It will take place over the month of May and in addition to the usual con fare there is also a MayWriMo challenge which is quite a bit like NaNoLJers Writo de Mayo except, I presume, bigger. Registration opened up yesterday and is free. They are having a limited number of memberships though, so if you’re interested in attending you ought to register sooner rather than later.
I’d planned to register from the first time I heard about it, so you can imagine how pleased I was when Deena Fisher emailed and offered me a spot on one of the panels. Would I like to sit on the panel about ‘Zine Evolution. Um, lemmethinkaboutthat-YES. Yes, I really would. Thank you 🙂
So I am. I’m nervous. I’m not really an expert about ‘zines, but I’m more than happy to share what I -do- know based on my personal expirience. Hopefully that’s enough and I don’t end up looking like an idiot. If you’re going to Coyote Con and want to see if I manage to get through the panel without inserting my foot in my mouth, the ‘Zine Evolution panel is on May 29th at 5PM EST. In addition to yours truly, JA Howe, Karen Newman and Megan Arkenberg will be panelists.
It should be an adventure, and the flutter of nerves I feel in my stomach when I think about doing it tells me that doing this is a good thing.
