Fanfilms, Authority, and Accessibility

by Linda Codega

People are often aware of fandom and fanwork through the lens of fanfiction. Sometimes fanart makes its way into the public consciousness, but more often than not, these two expressions of fanwork are the most commonly recognized. Some other methods of fandom expression, such as podfic, fanvids, and cosplay, are also well known, but an […]

The Importance of Queer Fandom

by Linda Codega

In the direct aftermath of Pride Month, seeing proud queer people and seeing people fight and protest and stand up to tyranny, I’m reminded again of the importance of Queer Fandom.

The Fanfiction is Female

by Linda Codega

Fanfiction has come back into vogue. Well, not entirely; it is still a niche consumer (and creator) market.
