Welcome Lauren Orsini!

By Shawn Scott Smith| March 29, 2010 | 1 Comment

con-news, has always worked best when the reports come directly from fandom, as Petrea and myself can only be at so many conventions. One area I definetly feel that gets the short end here is the ever growing Anime populace, and that is why it makes me very happy to announce that Lauren Orsini will be blogging here about her experiences in fandom. A quick note from Lauren,

“Hello everyone! I’m Lauren, a graduate student journalist, documentarian and anime convention reporter in Washington D.C. While obtaining my masters in Print Journalism, I realized that I much prefer applying my reporting to the web and that I can’t deny my geeky interests any longer. As a result, I’ve made East Coast anime fans, and their events, my personal beat. When I am not working on my full length documentary on American anime fandom, I attend conventions and anime related events for fun and journalism. Right now, my favorite anime is Soul Eater and my favorite video game is Heavy Rain. Looking forward to getting to know everyone around here!”

Can’t wait to read what flavor Lauren adds to the site. Please help me extend a welcome to our newest contributor. And you can read her blog here.
