femcon

The schedule for this year’s FemSlashCon has been finalised and you can see all the times etc. HERE (time zone specific versions will be added in a few days).

Information on the panels, including a list of panellists, times and a rough idea of what we’ll be discussing in each panel will be added to the IDF website over the following month. So get your diaries out and start planning how you’re going to spend the International Day of Femslash weekend.

Femslash Fandom Poll

To help us decide what panels to feature at this year’s FemSlashCon please choose the top 5 fandoms for which you’d like to attend a panel at this year’s convention. If your fandom of choice isn’t listed, simply add it in the text field at the end of the poll.

The poll will be open until the 10th May when the results will be collated and the fandom-specific panels chosen. Then begins the real work of choosing, and approaching, prospective panellists, a feat that would be made much simpler with your input; so if you have suggestions for interesting panellists and, better yet, know how to contact them, please leave those details in a reply to this post.

Questions for our Panellists

If you’re unavailable to attend the convention tomorrow, but would still like to ask one of our panellists a question, please include it in a reply to this post, along with the name of the panellist and the panel in question. I can’t guarantee we’ll have the time to ask all the questions but we’ll try to include as many as possible.

Suggest a Femslash or Femslash-Friendly Community or Site

Every year prior to the International Day of Femslash and FemSlashCon we need to contact femslash and femslash-friendly sites to ask their permission to advertise the event – between three and five posts over a four month period – and see if they’d be interested in becoming part of the project. Every year, the list of sites changes, as new fandoms, pairings and websites spring up, and others close their doors. So we need your help to make sure we have an up-to-date list of femslash groups to approach.

If you know of a site that’s not included below, please pop the details in a reply to this post, but keep in mind that the site needs to be for adult pairings. If you’re the owner or moderator of a femslash or femslash-friendly site – listed below or not – and would like to give us permission, please do, as it will save us a lot of time.

The rise of Tumblr and other such sites makes this kind of collective advertising more difficult, but if you’d like to be kept informed of IDF and FSC events through Tumblr or Facebook or Twitter you can always like or friend or whateveritscalled our accounts and help to spread the word that way.

If you’d like to be on the advertising committee for IDF/FSC – we’ve decided to have smaller groups, responsible for specific tasks, this year, rather than one big group, to save on confusion – please drop me a line at internationaldayoffemslash@gmail.com.

Video editors and graphic artists needed

Are you a video editor or graphic artist interested in femslash? Do you want to use your skills to help spread the word about the International Day of Femslash and FemSlashCon?

If the answer to those two questions is ‘yes’, then sign up to become one of IDF’s official video and/or graphic designers.

Either reply to this post, with your e-mail address and area of interest, or drop us an e-mail at: internationaldayoffemslash@gmail.com.

Femslash Needs YOU!

Graphics 2013

Now that 2013 is well and truly upon us we need to turn our attentions to preparing for this year’s International Day of Femslash and FemSlashCon’13.

One of the first things we will need are graphics, with which to advertise the event, and spread news of what’s happening to all four corners of cyber-space. So this is where you come in, at least those of you with a graphics-bent, because we need as many graphic submissions as possible, covering as many different fandoms and pairings as possible.

Graphics should include the title of the event: either ‘International Day of Femslash’ or ‘FemSlashCon’13’ and the date: 20th July, 2013 or 20-21st July, 2013, plus the url of this website.

There aren’t any set dymensions but as these are to be used on websites, journals, tumblr etc. they should be adequate for the task.

Please submit your graphics either in a reply to this post or to the IDF e-mail address: internationaldayoffemslash@gmail.com
