Exhausted, but happy

Tights & Tiaras is over. Well, apart from a few post conference thank yous and chores. A very weary, but brilliant team of conference organisers have all been dispatched to their homes.

We had a fantastic time. The presenters were great, the discussion lively, and everyone incredibly friendly and supportive. It's such a pleasure to run an event where the participants are enthusiastic and good natured. I dare not single out any particular panel or paper, because I enjoyed everything I had a chance to sit in on. We even managed to Skype one presenter in from the US - it didn't go horribly wrong!

We were surprised by the media interest. No, that wasn't me in The Age. It may have been a couple of other members of the team, though. We had people on drive time radio, Karen Healey, our keynote speaker, did a spot on The Book Show, and we have some more media coming up. It appears people are interested in female superheroes. This can only be a good thing!
