Drawing, fanfic, other stuff.  The schedule will be up soon.

Are you aware that all-caps is considered shouting?  Shouting and spamming are not the most effective ways to get answers around here.  You might want to think about that when you post :)

Erm, if you're the one that's so interested, why don't you just watch the forums/main page for it yourself, like everyone else?

I doubt a busy staffer would take the time to track you back down later.

Thanks, Blackjack!
Hi, alphonselric89!
I'm Rem, Fan Creation Manager. *waves* Drop by the Directors and Council Rooms on the 3rd floor of the Hilton Hotel side of the con, any time, and introduce yourself :)
Here's a general idea for you:
We have a wide variety of programming related to fan creations. Fan creations are basically things that people who are fans of anime, manga, webcomics, gaming, J-culture, or whatever else is drawing them to come to a con, either make or collect for themselves, that are not produced by industry, but by the fans. In our particular two rooms, that's largely fanfiction (creative writing based on others' published/released work); original fiction; spoken, cosplayed, or improvised fanfiction; fan art (art based on others' published/released work); original art; manga (with original storylines); doujinshi (manga based on others' published/released work); webcomics; and cute crafts such as making plushies (which in previous years we called Dollies, but are now differentiating from Dolfies, which are ball-jointed dolls, panels about which are held outside the Creation Station); teddy bears and other stuffed animals, and costumes for them; and chibi-dolls.

We have hands-on workshops to teach you how to make these craft items, and we provide the supplies. We have art contests and writing contests for prizes. We have improvisational theatre games for prizes. We have panels that help you learn how to make your own written, drawn, and computer-generated fan creations. And we have a ton of fun and camaraderie, especially at our flagship event, Fanfiction Bedtime Stories. Basically it's a sweet slumber party atmosphere where folks read or cosplay their own, or others', fan or original fictions to a supportive, appreciative audience.

There's also specific times that the rooms are basically available for quiet time, for writing and drawing or coloring on one's one, or networking with others with similar interests, or asking contest judges for pointers.

Hope to see you there, thanks for your interest, and enjoy your first con!

Did you mean, sign up to volunteer?
You're more than welcome to simply show up at the Directors and Council Rooms, on the 3rd floor of the Hilton side (not the Executive Towers), at con and introduce yourself. There might be a few things you could do to help out, but really we just want you to come play and learn with us and enter our contests!
