2016 Live-Streamed Panel

Hey there, awesome people! IT’S TIME FOR CH1CON 2016.

As always, one of the sessions at the conference will be a panel featuring our speakers. (You can check out who all is speaking this year here.) Also as always, we’re going to live stream this on YouTube so all of you amazing young writers who couldn’t make it to Ch1Con 2016 still get to participate in something.

This year’s panel will take place from 3:00 to 4:00 PM central time during the conference on Saturday, August 6th.

This is totally free and you don’t need to sign up for anything; it’s simply our gift to you to thank you for all of your support throughout the year. You can find the live stream on our YouTube channel at:

www.youtube.com/chapteroneconference

We’ll be asking the panelists a mixture of questions from both the attendees at the conference and those of you watching from home. The questions can be about absolutely anything you want, serious or goofy, writing-related or not. (For example, in 2014 we asked our speakers about their OTPs. One replied that she shipped herself and Panera.)

If you’ll be watching the live stream and would like to ask the speakers a question, there are two ways you can go about doing it:

1.) If you already know what you’d like to ask, you can email your question(s) to us at chapteroneconference@aol.com any time until the day of the conference.

2.) If you come up with a question while you’re watching the live stream, you can tweet it using #Ch1Con.

Either way, feel free to ask as many questions as you’d like. No promises we’ll make it through every single question during the hour-long panel, but we’ll do our best.

Thanks again for supporting us, guys! It means the world to everyone on the Ch1Con team.

See you at 3:00 PM!

– Julia
