    As a prelude to Banned Books Week later this September, SpellCaster Venessa sat down with a panel of fanfic writers and fanartists for a philosophical discussion of the rewards, challenges, controversy and comedy of producing material for "mature audiences" in the Harry Potter fandom. Some of our show highlights:

    - Meet the panel: artists tripperfunster and mariahgem, and writers bennmorland (fic journal: spkr_4_the_dead) and maple_mahogany.
    -Ethics versus Aesthetics - what's the difference between art and *cough* pornography?
    -To Squick Or Not To Squick: The stuff we can't bare to look at (and can't look away from).
    -Staying in character, telling a good story, and avoiding the senseless stuff.
    -*gasp* Sexuality in Canon?!
    -Slash = Sexy!
    -Fandom is about creative freedom... or is it?
    -The audience for adult fandom creativity could be made up of anyone... even you.
    -Does Harry Potter nurture deviance?
    -Writing and Drawing for a global audience
    -Group therapy - the panel shares what it's like to be censored.
    -Who's responsible for protecting the kids?
    -How do we protect ourselves as artists and authors?
    -The Feedback Segment: Our panel addresses YOUR comments! :)
    -Reaching Conclusions: Erotic art/fiction making us better writers and authors.
