  1. Sorry to post so much, but just found out about Escape Velocity, to be held May 24-26, 2019 at the Gaylord Hotel, National Harbor (Washington DC/Maryland). Looks really interesting. It says it'll have science, technology, pop culture, Museum of Science Fiction, and has pics of cosplayers. The url: https://escapevelocity.events
  2. Just FYI, the Women's Empowerment Expo will be held at the WEWCC on Saturday, June 15, 2019, from 10am -- 5pm. If interested, the url is: https://womenempowerx.com/washington-dc
  3. Just found out about the "7th Annual Washington Writers Conference" to be held May 10-11, 2019 at the Marriott (across from the White Flint metro) in North Bethesda, Maryland. Sponsored by the Washington Independent Review of Books. It's really expensive though (so I probably won't be going ). But they'll have one-on-one pitch sessions with literary agents from New York, Boston and Washington, DC, among other program things. If interested, the url is: washingtonindependentreviewofbooks.com/page/washington-writers-conference-2019 If anyone's interested in a sci-fi/fantasy literary convention, there's "Capclave" (capclave.org). October 18-20, 2019, at the Hilton across from the Twinbrook metro. Not as expensive as the conference, above, thank goodness. Does anyone know of other writer conferences around the DC area? There's the "Writer's Center" in Bethesda, Maryland, that has lots of events going on, but that's about it (I think). Anyhoo, sure would be fun to find out about other writer conferences.
  4. Thought someone mentioned this a while ago, but couldn't find the post. Recently saw this info, so thought I'd pass it on: the 2019 Pokemon World Championships are gonna be held August 16-18, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, DC. So great it's gonna be at the same location as Otakon.

    That'd be awesome! So many AMVs over the past years are terrific!

    Anniversary merch sounds terrific! Especially Otakon's tshirts -- I really like those. Are you thinking of making a new hat, or perhaps getting another official Otakon one? It's so hard to let go of my old tshirts -- they're so comfortable and have great memories from Otakon. Some special programming from Otakon would be really fun, maybe like videos showing bits of Otakon through the years. All the things people mentioned in Kewshi's post on 2019's festival theme sound terrific too. I really hope Otakon does what they mentioned.
