Hosting a Panel

So, I'm thinking about hosting a panel at AX 2013 about fanfiction. I remember going to one a few years ago, and the room was packed (standing room only). However, to my knowledge, there hasn't been one since. Before I submit an official application on the website, I was hoping to get some feedback on whether or not anyone might be interested in attending such a panel.

Also, if anyone here has ever hosted a panel, I'd like some general advice for panel-hosting.

My basic plan is to gather a small group of experienced fanfiction writers and have two main sections in the panel: general tips on what to do and what to avoid when writing fanfiction and then an audience Q&A.

Any comments and opinions are appreciated.

If you do this just don't do it as an 18+ panel... Like stay away from smut talks.... A lot of readers are you get these days so u don't want to limit ur fan base.

I'm also wanting to host a panel too! I submitted my application last night. Does anyone know if there is an age limit to hosting a panel at Anime Expo? I couldn't find any information about that at all.

Okay, so I've got two people interested after a couple of days. So, it'd probably be small panel, but I can work with that. And thank you for the advice animenerd93. I was thinking about making it pg-13 and offering to be available after the panel was over for anyone who wanted to ask questions like that or maybe just passing out cards with my contact info so they email me or w/e after the con.

Shana, I have no clue if there is an age-limit on panel-hosting, but I can suggest asking on the official AX website forums or sending an email to them.
