Panels

Panels are likely the most important and rewarding aspect about the Mid-Atlantic College Radio Conference. Each year open discussions and talks take place during the afternoon of the 2nd day of the conference. Most topics deal with important issues to college radio and the independent music community. On occasion, topics branch out to various loosely related subjects like war, politics, d.i.y. ethics, and grassroots organizing. Please check back for more information on this year's panels.


DIY Publishing
Massanutten Regional Library, First Floor @ 2:15 pm

Independent writers/artists will discuss creating/publishing their works and how to do so. Panelists will share experiences working in different media (both print and digital) and various genres, the advantages/challenges of each, and how others can disseminate their creative output to a wider audience.

Brian Walsby - Illustrator for Melvins, 7 Seconds, Manchild comic, and member of Double Negative.
Katy Otto - writer/editor for Give Me Back zine, former writer for Heartattack zine, and former member of Del Cielo.
Brandon Peck - writer/designer for RVA Magazine/Holy Moly and member of Mouthbreather.


I will be bringing up all of my books and my t-shirts to peddle to whoever is interested. Say hello and chances are I will be a nice guy.
