***Remember our audience consists of readers, authors, aspiring authors, editors, cover artists, bloggers, and many more. Therefore, each will have their own types of questions.

Panels are a great way for readers and authors to get to know you.
Our panels are set to help others learn, so we have some rules for our panels.
Each panel will have up to 5 panelists.

Workshops are another way authors and readers get to know you.
Again, we at IRC set up the workshops for learning purposes, so we appoint suited to the subject matter.
