GUESTS: Ru Emerson. We are happy to announce that Ru will be coming back as a guest speaker! She is the author of several Xena novels: The Empty Throne, The Huntress and the Sphinx, and The Thief of Hermes. Currently, she is signed to write three upcoming Xena novels to be released sometime in 1999. Ru will be available for signing books and answering your questions! We also have special guest bards Redhawk, Llachlan, and Thamiris. They will all be speaking about writing fan fiction, posting work on the Internet, and other issues relevant to writing fan fiction.

Charity Auction Proceeds for The Battered Womens Support Services of British Columbia (Canada).

WHAT WE ARE ABOUT: The Third Annual PNW XenaFest is a non-profit, fan-run event organized by an international contingent of fans from Canada, the United States and New Zealand. Our first festival took place in Vancouver (March 29, 1997) and last year in Seattle (Renton), Washington (May 30, 1998). We return to Canadian soil again this year to "Salute the Women of Xena: Warrior Princess". We hold these events, not only because of our love for the program, but more importantly to show a little warrior spirit of our own and help those less fortunate than ourselves. Last year, we raised over $1,400 US for Snohomish County Center for Battered Women. The struggle to educate the public about the plight of abused women continues. This year, we are honoured to have The Battered Women's Support Services of British Columbia as the beneficiary of the XenaFest Charity Auction. We very much look forward to your participation! See you all again in Vancouver, BC! LET'S CELEBRATE AND PARTY!!

Rita Jessica Ma, Del Press, Julie Ruffell, Dawn Grummett, Stephanie Davis, Danielle Breden, Angela Sedillo, Jenna Tomlin, Debbie Barbay, Kathy Chaurasiya and Rebekah Mills
