Breaking into Traditional Publishing

Call Me 'M"

In this intimate conversation, we take a look at Transgender and Non-Binary representation in media, both in and out of character, with Ess Hödlmoser.

Doccubus

Whoever you ship Bo with, we can all agree that Doccubus' journey is one for the ages. They may have had their ups and downs throughout the series, but they make a promise to eachother in the end to try. In this panel, we talk to Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer about their characters' journey of loving and learning and what they think Lauren and Bo are up to now.

Four Truths and a Lie

In this modified version of the popular game Four Truths and a Lie, three of our guests will recount an event from their lives while the fifth will tell a good old fashioned fib, all based on an assigned theme. The audience (you) will vote on which story they believe is a lie via the classic applause-o-meter. Loads of fun to be had!

Pin and Pop Swap

Are you secretly part magpie and LOVE to hoard shiny things?  We'd like to offer our attendees a place to trade, swap or share their pin or pop collection. Other cool currency to bring to this meetup includes, but is not limited to: dice, magic cards, autographs and video games. Also, if you've created pins, bracelets or ribbons to hand out to fans throughout the convention, this is the perfect place to distribute them. Above all, please be polite and remember the rules of the con apply here as well.  Who doesn't love pop culture bartering?!

Reigning Queens

Although the two never appeared in the same scene, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth became great friends in the real world. In this panel, we talk to Adelaide and Rachel about their time filming Reign and the friendship forged behind the scenes. Maybe we'll even ask about Ikea pt. 2? #IYKYK
