Panelists: Annette Klause, Marianne Mancusi, Sharyn November, Jon Skovron (M)
How is communicating with younger readers different from communicating with adults? Are the differences significant? How does one's online presence differ when dealing with younger readers, e.g. what's the best form of social media to use. Does the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act come into play at all? How does one go about making school appearances?

Panelists: Matt Betts, Annette Klause (M), Elaine Stiles
What movies and TV have stayed true to their source material and which didn't and is that good or bad? Since movies have different strengths than books is a faithful adaptation going to give you a good movie? Is it the idea or the story that makes it work? For instance, the Walking Dead doesn't have everything the comic book did, but is very popular.

How do writers mine their own lives? Are they always on duty, ready to steal what they see and hear? What changes do you make to real life in your fiction (assuming you don't normally hang out with elves and aliens)?
