    • Bustle's Emma Lord focused on the successful protest of a fanfiction 'comedy' act at WonderCon as part of discussing misconceptions about fanfic writers that she's tired of. "WonderCon recently had to pull Chris Gore’s 'Fan Fic Theater' panel, in which he was going to read out loud actual fan fiction and make fun of it for sport. Like many fellow authors, I took to Twitter to question what the panel was for, and within thirty seconds of my incredibly civil tweet asking what was up, I’d been blocked by Chris Gore himself...It didn’t take long for the convention to cancel the whole thing, because duh, WonderCon, you can’t make fun of the very audience for your event and expect them to not get defensive about it."
    • The Age reported on fans' reactions to the murder of a cosplayer in Australia with a display of numerous pieces of fan art. "[A] global group of cosplay fans...are expressing their grief through art. Masa Vukotic was a well-regarded member of the cosplay - or costume play - community...Many members of Melbourne's cosplay community have paid tribute to the teen with sketches and paintings of Masa dressed in her signature 'lolita' style. Some admitted they had never met Masa, but felt compelled to draw images of her or post photos of themselves wearing pink in her honour, her favourite colour."
    • Comic Book Resources wrote about a discussion on The Nightly Show about fandom and diversity. Marvel’s director of content and character development, Phil Jimenez, said "It feels strange to me that we would partition race, gender and nerd as if they were distinct things...All human beings are this combination of experiences and ideologies. […] Everybody’s get some nerd in them. But the idea that, somehow, being a nerd is separate from one’s religious or moral or political beliefs is strange to me. We all bring everything to our decision-making on a daily basis.”
    • Fusion.net reported on the success of various actor-led charity campaigns. "Padalecki’s campaign is the latest example of a burgeoning form of celebrity activism—one inextricably intertwined with social media and the nerdiest brand of superfandom. The new activism is kicked off by a star—in this case, the lead of a show that has a massive following on Tumblr—but powered by his admirers. (Incidentally, all examples involve male stars and their largely female fan bases.) The star, in turn, interacts with fans about the campaign, energizing the cause. Everyone feels good knowing they’re fighting for the same thing."

    Help out a researcher!

    This month we have received a request for research participation from Jean Drzyzgula at St. Mary's College of Maryland. As part of her thesis for an undergraduate degree, she is conducting research on *fandom and identity exploration* under the oversight of Dr. Iris Ford.

    The purpose of this research study is threefold: to understand the role participation in media fandoms has on the development of personal identities for young MOGAI (LGBT, Queer) people; to understand the extent to which participation in media fandoms has impacted participants’ identities; and to understand how these trends impact individuals participating in them.

    Note that survey participants must be at least 18 years of age. You can find the survey online; a consent agreement is included on the main page.

    Contact information is jadrzyzgula [at] smcm [dot] edu and Icford [at] smcm [dot] edu.

    The final paper and any future works will be shared with the community, and some limited portions of the data set collected may be available depending on if it is judged to not impact confidentiality (and with advisor approval).

    If you have requests for research participation, please view our policy for inclusion at our website.


    The OTW encourages anyone to submit an event that's not already listed, and to check out the calendar throughout the year!

  • OTW Fannews: Shark & Ranger Takedowns

    By Pip Janssen on Venerdì, 20 March 2015 - 4:36pm

    • Bloomberg BNA was one of many sites to write about a dispute over a Power Rangers fan film created by professional director Joseph Kahn. It was taken down from Vimeo in response to a takedown notice under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act from the owner of the Power Rangers franchise. Although it was later permitted to be rehosted, the case raised a number of interesting questions about fair use and who would have prevailed in court. A post on Entertainment Geekly also questioned the 'fan film' label and the intentions for the film.
    • Legal Professor Paul Heald speculated over 3-D shark designs being sold online after their appearance in Katy Perry's Superbowl performance. "The generally accepted position is that clothing is not protected by copyright. The copyright act contains a long list of what’s protected: literary works; musical works; plays; choreographic works; pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works; movies; sound recordings; and architectural works. Where would clothes fit? Well, the best you can do is sculptural works—they are sort of thin 3D sculpture. However, within that category, costume designers run into a problem called the “useful article” doctrine which disqualifies utilitarian sculptural works...It is generally accepted that clothing is unprotected [because] [i]ts design is intrinsic to its function."
    • Kimberly Anne Tan interviewed a bookseller on Urban Wire about fanfiction. Asked whether fan fiction should be recognised as literature, Anthony Koh Waugh replied, "Literature, to me, means written works of quality and artistic merit. There are fan fiction inspired by classic works and popular fiction and among them, some are better written than the others. I see fan fiction as a creative innovation and whether or not the genre should be recognised as literature will depend on the acceptance by the literary circle." However asked if he would sell fan fiction, he said "Of course! Fan fiction is a form of creative writing. Having said that, it also depends on how a particular book fits within our curation criteria."
    • Certainly it's increasingly easy to find, even in published form. Zaire's Books Alive featured discussion of a short story by Kiru Taye, a Nigerian-born novelist residing in the United Kingdom, noting that she had written an erotic fan fiction short story inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel Americanah.

    What fanworks have you seen affected by takedown notices? Write about them in Fanlore! Contributions are welcome from all fans.

    We want your suggestions! If you know of an essay, video, article, podcast, or link you think we should know about, comment on the most recent OTW Fannews post. Links are welcome in all languages! Submitting a link doesn't guarantee that it will be included in a Fannews post, and inclusion of a link doesn't mean that it is endorsed by the OTW.

  • Transformative Works and Cultures Releases Issue No. 18

    Transformative Works and Cultures, issue number 18, “Performance and Performativity in Fandom,” guest edited by Lucy Bennett (Cardiff University) and Paul J. Booth (DePaul University), has been released. This special issue focuses on performance as it relates to fandom and comprises scholarly research articles, personal essays, interviews, and book reviews.

    As the editors write in their editorial, “We want to problematize this notion of fandom as a particular behavior and instead note the characteristics of being that permeate a fannish identity” (1.3). Accordingly, the contributions focus on fannish artworks and contributions as a form of performance, including an analysis of a Facebook group of fans of 19th-century British literature who post images of fictional constructions in the act of reading (Dawn Opel); a study of identity via fannish tattoos, with this sort of performance linked to sacred experience (Bethan Jones); and a discussion of Harry Potter slash disseminated within LiveJournal communities as a form of performance (Darlene Rose Hampton).

    Other articles address performativity through topics including language learners and Na’vi (Christine Schreyer), Doctor Who–themed weddings (Jessica Elizabeth Johnston), horror film audience reaction movie trailers (Alexander Swanson), and Sims fandom on Tumblr (Ruth A. Deller). Abigail De Kosnik links performance studies to new media studies, with a particular focus on fandom.

    Cosplay, an overt form of performativity, is directly addressed in several contributions: Ellen Kirkpatrick addresses cosplay and the superhero genre, Nicolle Lamerichs writes about cosplay music videos, and Shelby Fawn, in a personal essay, relates cosplay to her personal growth. Relatedly, Brendan Riley writes about zombie walks.

    Interviews are with Kurt Lancaster, an early scholar of performance in fan studies, and Joy DeLyria and Kris Hambrick, the cofounders of Hello Earth Productions, a theater company that produces outdoor (re)performances of classic Star Trek episodes.

    Welcome to our Events Calendar roundup for the month of March! The Events Calendar can be found on the OTW website and is open to submissions by anyone with news of an event. These can be viewed by event-type, such as Academic Conferences, Fan Events and Fests, Legal Events, OTW Events, or Technology Events taking place around the world.

    • Subtitled "the slash slumber party," Escapade 2015 is celebrating 25 years of bringing slash fans together. The event has three panel tracks--fandom-specific, meta discussion, and tech--and panel discussion is "highly interactive." Attendance to Escapade (March 6-8 in Los Angeles, California, United States) is capped at 150. Read fan impressions of Escapade at Fanlore.
    • Cardboard*Con is "the world's most affordable science fiction / fantasy convention, and the first dedicated to the art of cardboard costuming." The event includes workshops and a costume contest. It's in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, on March 7.

    • Described as a "light-hearted academic conference," the Conference on Middle-Earth 2015 is a single-track conference dedicated to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. It takes place March 28-29, in Albany, New York, United States.

    • The Pop Culture Association/American Culture Association Joint Annual Conference will include topics related to fandom and fan theory such as fanfiction, cosplay, fan pilgrimages, and more. Mat Fraser, actor (American Horror Story: Freak Show) and disability advocate, will be a featured speaker. The conference is April 1-4 in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.

    Calls for Papers this month come from:

    • Gendered Politics of Production: Girls and Women as Media Producers. Girls and women are producing more media than ever before, but they face misogynistic backlash in occurrences such as the recent "Gamergate." As part of a one-day symposium at Middlesex University, writers are encouraged to submit papers on themes including, but not limited to, historical analyses of girls and women as media producers; the production and circulation of feminist and activist media texts; gendered labour in media industries; and methodological approaches to studying production cultures. Abstracts of 250 words and a 50-word bio are due March 15; the symposium is June 16.

    • The Fan Studies Network 2015 Conference. The Fan Studies Network is issuing a call for papers and panels for this year's conference. Topics include but are not limited to activism and fandom, fandom and conflict, fan conventions, transculture and fandom, and more. The conference is also accepting expressions of interest in a short "speed-geeking" session, in which a speaker can chair a discussion of a brief idea for feedback. Submissions are due March 22; the conference is June 27-28 in Norwich, United Kingdom.

    • Edited Volume on Non-Professional Subtitling. Non-professional subtitling (sometimes known as "fansubbing") is one of the less-studied forms of user-generated content, arising in the 1980s with the growing popularity of anime in the United States. In this case, "non-professional" doesn't refer to the quality but instead to the type of content produced for distribution online and without profit. Both scholars and practitioners are welcome to contribute papers for a volume on the subject area. Topics can include but are not limited to the non-professional subtitling process, products, communities, and training. Abstracts are due March 31 with full articles due August 30; the volume's anticipated publication date is January 2016.

    Help out a researcher!

    This month we received two requests for research participation:

    The first request is from Arinda Sutantapreeda at Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. She is conducting an online survey on the users of fanfiction websites and the relationship between authors' gender, sexual orientation, and the preference for types of erotic stories.

    Her contact information is arinda [dot] sutantapreeda [at] gmail [dot] com.

    You can find the survey online; note that the latter part of the survey is ages 18 and up only, though all ages can participate in the first half. The research results will be shared with survey participants who provide their email addresses in the survey or who send their email address separately.

    The second request comes from Lidia Wisniewska at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Educational Sciences, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Torun, Poland.

    She is working on a study to find out more about motivation to read (and write) fanfiction, and is asking authors and readers to take a survey. She has Ethical Board approval for this effort as part of a larger project.

    Her contact information is lidiaw [at] umk [dot] pl.

    Survey results are anonymous, and by participating in the survey you are giving consent to have your answers included in the research. Results will be published and available on request.

  • Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü Geldi !

    Ania tarafından hazırlanan, cosplay, metinsel ve görsel sanatlar gibi çeşitli hayran eserlerine sahip afiş

    Zaman geldi! Bugün her türlü hayran eserinin kutlaması yapılan yıllık Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü’nün ilki. Aşağıda OTW’nin (Transformatif Eserler Derneği) sponsorloğunu yapan ya da OTW ile bağlantısı bulunan bazı şeylerin listesi var ancak bize yorumlar kısmında bildiğiniz başka olay ya da etkinlik varsa bildirirseniz biz de duyurabiliriz.

    1. #IFDrabble adlı bir kısa hayran eseri meydan okuması düzenliyoruz. Tabletinizi, dizüstü bilgisayarınızı ya da telefonunuzu alın ve hayran eserlerini kutlamak için en fazla 100 kelime yazın! (Neden 100 kelime?)

      En sevdiğiniz karakter—ya da en sevdiğiniz çift—neye hayranlık duyuyor?

      • Tony Stark gizlice Transformers hayran filmlerini izliyor—ve seviyor—mu?
      • Athos, Aramis/Porthos çiftini destekliyor mu?
      • Shinee üyeleri Final Fantasy karakterlerinin cosplayini yapıyorlar mı?

      Ancak meydan okumamız sadece yazmak üzerine değil — meydan okuma için bir drawble (resimli kısa hikaye), kısa bir video, sesli bir eser ya da farklı formatta bir eser de gönderebilirsiniz. Kutlamaların bir parçası olarak bugün gönderin.

      Bulmamıza ve paylaşmamıza yardım edin — tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth ya da neredeyseniz orada #IFDrabble etiketiyle paylaşın. (Ve eğer Archive of Our Own – AO3’te (Kendimize Ait Bir Arşiv) paylaşırsanız, Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü 2015 etiketiyle paylaşın.)

      Uygunsuz içerik kullanmazsanız biz de duyurabiliriz!

    2. Geribildirim Festivali: Hayran eserleri yaratan ve paylaşan herkes, onları beğenen insanların düşüncelerini duymayı sever. Geribildirim bıraktığınız eserlerin linkini yorum olarak bırakarak siz de katılın. Bu şekilde hayran eserlerinde sevdiğiniz şeyleri paylaşabilir ve başkalarını da geribildirim bırakmaya yönlendirebilirsiniz.
    3. 8 Şubat’ta yazarlar Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me ve Racheline Maltese ile birlikte"Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (Hayran Eserleri Neden Kutlanmalı) üzerine canlı sohbet etkinliği yaptık. Bütün bu yazarlar hayran kurgusu yazarak başladı ve daha sonra eserleri basıldı—ve hala hayran eserleri içinde yer alıyorlar. Panelistler moderatör Francesca Coppa ile birlikte her türlü hayran eserinin değerini ve önemini tartıştı. Eğer kaçırdıysanız hala transkripti okuyabilirsiniz.
    4. Başkaları da Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü hakkında konuşuyor. Bunun hakkında okuyup dinleyebileceğiniz bazı yerler:

    Decembers förhandstitt på International Fanworks Day

    Dagen är kommen! Idag är den första årliga Internationella dagen för verk av fans, en dag då vi hyllar fans och alla deras verk. En lista följer nedan på lite olika saker som OTW (Organisationen för Transformativa Verk) sponsrar eller är kopplade till. Vi vill gärna att du lämnar en kommentar och berättar för oss om andra händelser eller saker du vet om inför dagen så att vi kan ge dig PR.

    1. Vi står värd för en utmaning för korta verk, #IFDrabble. Sätt på din platta, din laptop eller din smartphone och skriv upp till 100 ord som hyllar verk av fans! (Varför 100 ord?)

      Vad är din favoritkaraktär – eller ditt favoritpar – ett fan av?

      • Tittar Tony Stark i hemlighet på – och älskar – fanfilmer för Transformers?
      • Vill Athos para ihop Aramis och Porthos?
      • Klär medlemmarna i Shiree ut sig i cosplay som Final Fantasy-karaktärer?

      Men vår utmaning går inte bara ut på att skriva – du kan göra en drawble, en kort video, ljudfil eller något annat format till utmaningen istället. Bara lägg upp det idag som en del av hyllningen.

      Hjälp oss hitta den och dela den — tagga den med #IFDrabble på tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, eller varhelst du har din fandomaktivitet. (Och om du lägger upp den på Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Vårt Eget Arkiv), tagga den med International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Håll det någorlunda barntillåtet så kanske vi ger dig extra PR!

    2. Feedback-Fest: Alla som skapar och delar verk av fans älskar att höra av personerna som haft glädje av dem, så vi står värd för en Feedback-fest för att hylla verken vi älskar. Delta genom att lämna en kommentar här med en länk till verk som du har lämnat feedback på. På det sättet kan du dela det du älskar i verk av fans, samtidigt som du uppmundrar även andra att lämna feedback.
    3. 8 februari hade vi en chatt vid namn "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (“Varför verk av fans bör hyllas”), med författarna Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, och Racheline Maltese. Alla dessa författare började sin karriär med att skriva fanfiction och har gått vidare till att publicera professionella verk – och de deltar fortfarande i fandom. Tillsammans med moderatorn Francesca Coppa diskuterade panelen hur värdefulla och viktiga alla sorters verk av fans är. Om du missade det kan du fortfarande läsa chattloggen.
    4. Andra har också pratat om Internationella dagen för verk av fans. Här är några ställen där du kan läsa och höra om det:

    Vi känner också till följande hyllningar bland fans:

    Banner por Ania hecho con obras de fans incluyendo cosplay, texto y arte visual

    ¡Llegó el momento! Hoy es nuestro primer Día Internacional de Obras de Fans (IFD por sus siglas en inglés), un día para celebrar las obras de fans de todo tipo. A continuación mencionamos algunas de las cosas que la OTW (Organización para las Obras Transformativas) está patrocinando o con las que se encuentra conectada. Nos gustaría que nos hicieras saber, en los comentarios, acerca de otros eventos y actividades de las que estés informandx para poder mencionarlos.

    1. Estamos llevando a cabo un reto de obras cortas de fans, #IFDrabble. Saca tu tablet, laptop o tu móvil, y ¡escribe hasta 100 palabras para celebrar las obras escritas por fans! (¿Por qué 100 palabras? [NT: en inglés])

      ¿Con qué tipo de obras fandomeras se emociona tu personaje favorito —o tu pareja favorita?

      • ¿Acaso Tony Stark ve —y ama— en secreto las peliculas hechas por fans sobre Transformers?
      • ¿Le gusta a Athos el ship Aramis/Porthos?
      • ¿Quizá los miembros de Shinee realizan cosplay de personajes de Final Fantasy?

      Nuestro reto no es solo para obras escritas; también puedes enviar un drawble[NT: en inglés], un video corto, un audio o una obra corta en otro formato. Solo publícalo hoy como parte del día de la celebración.

      Ayúdanos a encontrarlas y compartirlas — etiqueta la obra con #IFDrabble en tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, o donde quiera que seas fan! (Y si publicas en Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Un Archivo Propio), etiqueta tu obra con International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Mantenlo apto para todo público, y con suerte ¡te promocionamos!

    2. Festival de Comentarios: A todo quien crea y comparte obras le encanta recibir comentarios de la gente que las disfrutó, por lo cual estamos realizando un Festival de Comentarios para celebrar las obras de las que nos enamoramos. Para participar, deja aquí tu comentario con un enlace a las obras en las que has dejado comentarios. De esta forma, puedes compartir lo que te encanta de las obras de fans, animando al mismo tiempo a otrxs a dejar comentarios.
    3. El 08 de febrero se llevó a cabo el chat en vivo acerca de “¿Por qué deben celebrarse las obras de fans?”, con las autoras Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, y Racheline Maltese. Todas estas autoras comenzaron escribiendo fanfiction y ahora publican profesionalmente —y aún participan en obras de fans. Junto con la moderadora Francesca Coppa, las panelistas discutieron el valor y la importancia de todo tipo de obras de fans. Si te lo perdiste, aún puedes leer la transcripción.
    4. Otras personas han estado hablando del Día Internacional de Obras de Fans. Aquí están algunos de los sitios donde podrás leer y escuchar acerca de él:

  • Międzynarodowy Dzień Twórczości Fanowskiej nadszedł!

    Message type:

    Baner autorstwa Ani przedstawiający twórczość fanowską, włączając w to cosplay, tekst i inne sztuki wizualne

    To już dziś! Pierwszy Międzynarodowy Dzień Twórczości Fanowskiej (IFD), dzień by świętować wszelkiego typu prace tworzone przez fanów. Poniżej znajdziecie kilka akcji, które OTW (Organizacja na rzecz Twórczości Przeobrażonej) sponsoruje lub jest z nimi związana. Dajcie nam znać w komentarzach o innych wydarzeniach lub działaniach z okazji tego dnia, a my się nimi podzielimy z innymi.

    1. Będziemy gospodarzami challengu dotyczącego krótkich prac, #IFDrabble. Wyciągnij swój tablet, komputer lub telefon i napisz do stu słów, by uczcić twórczość fanowską! (Dlaczego 100 słów?)

      Czego twój ulubiony bohater jest fanem?

      • Czy Tony Stark w tajemnicy ogląda (i kocha) stworzone przez fanów filmy Transformers?
      • Czy Athos shipuje Aramis/Porthos?
      • Czy członkowie Shinee robią cosplay bohaterów Final Fantasy?

      Nasz challenge nie jest tylko dla piszących — możesz też stworzyć drawble, krótki vid, pracę audio lub w innym formacie. Opublikuj je dziś, jako część swięta.

      Pomóż nam znaleźć i podzielić się pracami — otaguj je #IFDrabble na tumblrze, Facebooku, Dreamwidth, lub gdziekolwiek chcesz. (I jeśli opublikujesz je w Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Naszym Własnym Archiwum), otaguj je jako International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Jeśli twoja praca będzie safe for work (odpowiednia dla każdej grupy wiekowej), możemy podzielić się nią z innymi!

    2. Feedback Fest: Każdy kto tworzy i dzieli się swoimi pracami lubi usłyszeć komentarze od osób, którym się one podobały. Dlatego organizujemy Feedback Fest, by uczcić prace, które kochamy. Dodaj komentarz do tego wpisu z linkiem do skomentowanej przez ciebie pracy. W ten sposób możesz podzielić się tym co kochasz w pracach fanowskich, a jednocześnie zachęcić innych by też je skomentowali.
    3. Zostaw komentarz dla U.S. Copyright Office: OTW jest tylko jedną z wielu organizacji, która wnosi o wprowadzenie na stałe poprawek do DMCA tak by fani mogli tworzyć i dzielić się swoją twórczością. Podziel się swoją historią o tym, dlaczego prawo do remiksowania materiałów multimedialnych jest ważne. (The Copyright Office opublikuje wszystkie komentarze na swojej stronie.)
    4. 8 lutego mieliśmy okazję porozmawiać na temat "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (Dlaczego twórczość fanowska powinna być świętowana) z takimi autorkami jak Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me i Racheline Maltese. Wszystkie z nich zaczynały jako pisarki fanfiction, a następnie zaczęły publikować profesjonalnie — i wciąż biorą udział w tworzeniu prac fanowskich. Panel moderowała Francesca Coppa, a uczestniczki dyskutowały na temat wartości i znaczenia wszelkiego typu twórczości fanowskiej. Dla tych, którzy nie mogli wziąć udziału, przygotowaliśmy transkrypt.
    5. Inni ludzie też rozmawiają na temat Międzynarodowego Dnia Twórczości Fanowskiej. Oto kilka miejsc, gdzie możesz o nim przeczytać:

    Wiemy też o następujących działaniach fanów:

    Daj nam znać o innych miejscach, gdzie świętowany jest Międzynarodowy Dzień Twórczości Fanowskiej!

    Journée Internationale pour les Œuvres Aficionados

    Elle est là! Aujourd’hui est la première journée internationale des oeuvres aficionados annuelle, un jour pour célébrer tous types d’oeuvres aficionados. Vous trouverez ci-dessous plusieurs événements sponsorisés par, ou connectés à l’OTW (Organisation pour Oeuvres Transformatives), mais nous aimerions aussi savoir, dans les commentaires, si vous êtes au courant d’autres événements et actions pour que nous puissions les signaler à tout le monde.

    1. Nous hébergeons un défi d’oeuvres aficionados courtes, #IFDrabble. Sortez votre tablette, votre ordinateur portable ou votre téléphone et écrivez un maximum de 100 mots pour célébrer les œuvres aficionados! (Pourquoi 100 mots?)

      Qu'est-ce que votre personnage préféré — ou votre couple favori — préfère en terme de fandoms?

      • Est-ce que Tony Stark regarde — et adore — secrètement les films aficionados tirés de Transformers?
      • Est-ce que Athos apprécie le couple Aramis/Porthos?
      • Est-ce que les membres de Shinee font des cosplay des personnages de Final Fantasy?

      Mais notre défi n'est pas exclusivement un défi d'écriture — vous pouvez aussi présenter un drawble (croquis), une courte vidéo, un audio ou un autre format. Vous n’avez qu’à le poster aujourd’hui dans le cadre de la journée.

      Aidez-nous à les trouver et les partager! Mettez l'étiquette #IFDrabble sur tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, ou où que vous vouliez! (Et si vous l’affichez sur Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Notre Propre Archive), utilisez le tag International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Gardez-le tout public et nous ferons passer le mot!

    2. Fête des commentaires: Toutes les personnes qui créent et partagent des oeuvres aficionados aiment entendre les réactions des personnes qui les ont appréciées. Par conséquent, dans notre publication du 15 février célébrant la Journée Internationale des Oeuvres Aficionados, nous demanderons aux fans de partager les liens des oeuvres aficionados sur lesquelles ils/elles ont laissé des commentaires. De cette façon, chaque personne pourra partager ce qu’elle aime des oeuvres aficionados tout en encourageant les autres à laisser leurs impressions aussi.
    3. Le 8 février, nous avons organisé un chat live ayant pour thème “Pourquoi les oeuvres aficionados doivent-elles être célébrées?” avec les auteures Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, and Racheline Maltese. Toutes ces auteures ont commencé par écrire des fanfictions et ont réussi à publier des oeuvres dans un cadre professionnel—et participent toujours à l’écriture d’oeuvres aficionados. Avec la modératrice Francesca Coppa, elles ont discuté la valeur et de l’importance de tous les types d’oeuvres aficionados. Si vous n’avez pas eu la chance d’y assister, vous pouvez toujours lire la transcription.
    4. D’autres personnes ont mentionné la journée internationale des oeuvres aficionados. Voici quelques endroits pour lire et écouter à propos de ce sujet:

    Nous sommes aussi au courant des célébrations aficionados suivantes:

    • La pièce de théâtre radiophonique de Doctor Who créée par les fans, Dark Journey, célébrera la journée internationale des oeuvres aficionados sur leur site web et les médias sociaux avec la publication de bandes-annonce de films et d’oeuvres artistiques pour la deuxième série Dark Journey, arrivant en mars 2015.
