The OTW’s Fanlore Committee will be holding an open house to chat about Fanworks and Fan Communities with you on Sunday, September 3 from 19:00 to 21:00 UTC (What time is that in my timezone?). Come talk about your favorites and the ones you've known. Check out the pages for them on Fanlore and brainstorm suggestions for more information that could be added to the site!

A link to the chat will be available on Fanlore News shortly before the chat begins. Join us then!

“The coalescence of femslash as a metafandom unto itself may have paradoxically contributed to a bird's-eye view of its marginality. As we might glean from the primacy of slash as the unmarked term (denoting same-sex couples in general and male-male couples in particular), F/F remains underrepresented not only in scholarly research but also arguably in fandom overall (compared to M/M and also to het [heterosexual] and gen [nonsexual] fiction and art).

Femslash fans often frame their experience in this way, as was the case at the "Where's the F/F?" panel at the May 2015 WisCon feminist science fiction convention in Madison, Wisconsin. The conversation took as a jumping-off point detailed statistics, compiled by destinationtoast, on fan fiction posted at Archive of Our Own.”

TWC issue No 24 on femslash fandom is out! Read about Grey's Anatomy Wynonna Earp, The 100, Orphan Black, Once Upon a Time, Kpop, Jpop & more! https://goo.gl/n59EMJ
