    San Francisco, August 20, 2017: For the first time since our inaugural event in 2014, BABSCon is honored to announce the bard of pickle barrels, kumquats, and chimicherrychangas—the one and only Amy Keating Rogers—will be joining us this March!

    It’s no stretch to say that Amy is among the most beloved of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic’s writers, given that her credits include (among others) “Fall Weather Friends,” “A Dog and Pony Show,” “The Best Night Ever,” “Pinkie Pride,” “Testing Testing 1, 2, 3” and “Canterlot Boutique” before giving the Cutie Mark Crusaders their cutie marks at long last in “Crusaders of the Lost Mark.”If you’ve ever sung along to Pinkie Pie’s “Smile Song” or any of the “Weird Al” Yancovic-fueled madness in “Pinkie Pride,” you have Amy to thank. (She might even be an evil enchantress!)
    Outside of MLP, Amy’s illustrious credits include episodes of The Powerpuff Girls, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Dexter’s Laboratory, Fairly Oddparents, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, My Life as a Teenage Robot, and Danny Phantom. During her recent time at the House of Mouse, she was writing for their Star Darlings franchise.

    Amy is known throughout the pony world for her warmth, humor, and mad ukulele skills, and we couldn’t be happier to have her back. She’ll be joining Kelly Sheridan and Trevor Devall among our Guests of Honor.

    You don’t want to miss out on your first chance to see Amy at BABSCon in four years, so register now!

    About Bronies
    Fans of the show My Little Pony use the word "brony", a portmanteau of the words "bro" and "pony", though it can be used for any gender. Typically, bronies are centralized around the current edition of the My Little Pony franchise, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, which was created in 2010 by Lauren Faust for Hasbro. Bronies are typically between 15-30 in age, and majority male, but welcoming of all genders. The fan community is known for its immense volume of creative output, including art, music, comic, animations, and more. Beyond the creative endeavors, Bronies have been noted for their charitable work, inspired by the values codified in the animated series, and participate regularly in events to give back to their local communities. It is the hope of many bronies to help add kindness, laughter, honesty, loyalty, generosity, and a bit of magic to the world around them.
