Well, since Kita pointed y'all here

Let me say this once and for all:

Writercon is for *writers*. Of all stripes. Het? Gen? Slash? Shipper? Buffy? Angel? Spike? Willow? Xander? Firefly?... yes please. With a heaping helping of *writing*.

I'm mostly preaching to the choir here when I say this to my friends list, which is terribly eclectic, but it's about the writing and the shared love, not the shipper politics or the plots of the shows, except as related to the fic. It's about how fan fiction *is* literature, and it's about showing that we're as worthy as any other genre of writing.

There. Now go to writercon and look around. Or go to the website forthwith and fill out the interest form.

And, just by the way: I expect our first official guest will be an AtS media tie-in novelist.

Ok. From my lofty position in the programming chair, let me say that there will be NO panels that don't relate to writing. So we may well have a "how to write gay sex" panel hosted by...well, people who actually have gay sex, but we won't have a generic panel on 'slash' or 'het' or whatever.

And no panels on 'ships except as it relates to things like characterization (for example, might be a panel on writing unconventional ships, because that takes particular skills that don't apply to writing canon (and vice versa).

So say I. Dammit.

Whee! I love it when you get all forceful ;-)
