HEY MIDWEST MANGA MANIACS! I’m taking part in a couple panels at Ohayocon in Columbus this Saturday, 1/21/2023 (I’ve tabled at cons, but this is my first time as a panelist!)
- 10am – A213-215 (Panel 5): The Manga “Panel”!
- 4:30pm – A210-212 (Panel 4): Breaking into the Localization Industry
I will be on the panel with talented fellow manga industry folks:
Kristine Johnson (@Kristine_JE)
Lead project manager at J-Novel Club & Japanese-English translator
Jennifer Sherman (@jaasherman)
Editor at Square Enix Manga & Books.
I’m very grateful to them for inviting me to join in on the talks and am looking forward to meeting them IRL!
If you’re near Columbus and going to the convention, come stop by one of the panels! I used to get stage fright really bad as a kid, but I mostly got over it. Come there in person to witness whether it’s come back, so many years after my first time speaking in front of a crowd, haha. I’ll be at the con all day and am looking forward to meeting fellow lovers of all things manga!
