If you live in Seattle and/or are planning on attending Geek Girl Con this upcoming weekend, be sure to attend the Border House panel You Play Like a Girl: Video Games, Feminism, and The Border House on Sunday, Oct 9 from 4 to 5 PM in the Lopez room. TBH authors Deirdra, Brinstar, Quinnae, and myself will be panelists. Here’s the details:
The Border House bloggers address the trials and tribulations of starting a feminist blog for gamers. Topics include developing a unique and compelling angle, identifying and engaging your readership, exploring the ways video game culture can be more inclusive of women, and what’s wrong (and what’s right) with games and gameplay today.
I’ve never been to a fan convention before, so I especially thrilled to be participating in GGC.
