Mary Anastasia
Convention Editor

Mary Anastasia, as regular convention artist alley participant and hat seller, is something of a mad hatter. She helps keep convention listings as current as possible and assists with news stories. But you can update listings yourself by clicking the 'edit listing' link on the convention page, which we will review and approve in 7-10 days.
