Panelists Wanted!

Thanks again everyone for submitting such great ideas for programming for this year’s con! We received a great variety of submissions, and you can check out the list of topics you and your fellow attendees voted for in this post. We can’t wait to hear what you all have to say about your topics of choice in May. For those of you who want some more people to be on your panel, or if you need a helping hand for your roundtable or workshop, this is the post for you!

To help you find some like-minded fans to help you talk, squee, flail, whatever, about your topic of choice, just leave a comment on this post! Please include some information about your panel, roundtable, or workshop, and how many people you would like to be on it with you. If you see something in the comments that you’d like to help with, just jump right on in! If you’re like me, I know you want to volunteer to be on everything, but please keep in mind that you can only be on or run a maximum of four different pieces of programming.

The Programming Team is hard at work trying to build the schedule, and we want to accommodate as many people being on the things they want to be on as possible. In order to do this and get our schedule finalized in time to print up the program book, we will need all presenters of panels, workshops, and roundtables to be finalized by April 15th. So, this post will be open until then to help you all do that.

As always, if there are any questions, please leave a comment on this post, or email programming@confabcon.com!

  1. I think I might need a panelist who’s studied some feminism, and read Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern, and the Talent series.

  2. Hi! I could use another panelist or two for the a/b/o panel. The discussion topics I’ve worked out are roughly in the categories of: history, a/b/o as a genre, what you and other people like about it. I’ve already planned to talk about Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Sherlock, and One Direction/RPF in general, but other fandoms are definitely welcome as well.

    • Oooh. I would love it! I’m so into a/b/o! I’m pretty versed in all of the fandoms you’ve mentioned. You can catch me on twitter or email me at marymoline at gmail. πŸ™‚

      • Awesome! Emailed. πŸ™‚

  3. I’m looking for panelists who want to talk about history in fanfic. I’ll be talking about uses of history and constructing alternate history in reference to Captain America, but it’s a multifandom panel. I welcome anyone who wants to talk about history in other fandoms, parts of history fans can’t get enough of, parts of history fans should be talking about, historical inaccuracies that drive you crazy, how fans find and share historical sources–any topic related to history, fic, and fandom!

    • Depending on how far back into history you want to go! I have some minor interest in medieval history (all self taught), and might be able to help.

      • That sounds great, I’d love to have you on the panel!

        • I’m sorry I’m late responding to this. For some reason I’m not getting replies!

          You can contact me at miriel.crawford@gmail.com if you want to talk more about this!

  4. Hi! I’m looking for two panelists for the OT3 panel with fandom knowledge of and general enthusiasm for OT3s. Comment here if you’re interested!

    • Well, I’ve never been on a panel before but I definitely have the OT3 enthusiasm & a good base of knowledge on a wide variety of fandoms. I’m in, if you still need someone!

  5. HOCKEY. I’m really looking for someone to help bounce around a few ideas for topics to talk about because nobody really wants to hear me just word vomit about found families and probable poly communes for an hour. Would especially love someone more well-versed in women’s hockey to perhaps discuss ways we all can help the ladies.

    • I might be able to help with that one! aliascelli at gmail.

  6. Hello! I’m looking for fellow panelists to join me on two different panels about:
    1) Agender characters, writers, and experiences in fandom.
    and
    2)Brooklyn Nine-Nine and why it’s the actual best show on television right now,

    Both panels are pretty open-ended right now, so really the only requirement I’m looking for is a desire to yell about the topics with me.

    I’m on Twitter at @rakarolll, or email cosrac17@gmail.com. πŸ˜€
