    Fanlore’s Stub September encourages fans to contribute their expertise to the site. A stub is an article on Fanlore that is under-developed and missing important information. Right now, there are over 1,600 pages on Fanlore already identified as stubs. You’re invited to use the list to find a page where you know something about the topic, and edit the page to add your new information. Need help getting started? The Wiki Committee will host an editing party on Sunday, September 14, at 19:00 UTC.

    Here at the OTW, preserving fannish history is a central part of our mission! We're proud to be able to offer fans a place to host their works on the Archive of Our Own, and tell their own fannish histories on Fanlore. This month, bring us fannish April showers by digging out those old zines, memories of past cons, archived personal webpages, tales of shipwars and fannish events, works on slowly-decaying archives, and more! Upload your old works to the AO3 and tell your tales on Fanlore.

  • Special CFP: Transformative Works and Cultures

    Fan fiction is often compared to the literature of Greco-Roman antiquity. Both fan writers and classical authors use the techniques of allusion, appropriation, and transvaluation to expand on and/or to critique existing works. Transformative Works and Cultures invite papers treating classical literature/art as fan work; papers on contemporary fannish uses/transformations of ancient Greek and Roman literature, mythology, or history; papers investigating similarities and differences between contemporary transformative fan work and classical literature and art; and papers reflecting on what is at stake in making the comparison: what potential benefits and risks does it bring? Submissions should be aimed primarily at a fan studies audience, but should also be credible contributions to the study of classical literature and its reception. Submit final papers directly to TWC by March 1, 2015.
