Take-aways:
Coming up with ideas to improve PhilCon outreach to younger fans.
Accomplished authors Tom Purdom and Ken Altabef saying I’m doing right by working part-time so I can write.
Doing well on the panels. The attendees were all great.

In my experience, PhilCon went without a hitch. A number of ideas came from the “It’s Our Lawn Too” panel:
Bringing in more media tie-in and YA authors
Skyped guests
More panels about podcasts, epublishing, and electronic media
Resuming LARPs
Story readings for kids
More panels critiquing writing and art from attendees (I would be glad to run one)
