So remember a while back i was talking about running a fanfic reading event - well it is happening!
Here's our listing in the Melbourne Fringe Festival Program.
It will take place on Sunday 3rd October from 5pm, at Hares and Hyenas Bookshop in Fitzroy. if you don't know it, H&H is Melbourne's Queer bookshop, and it has a wonderful performance space in it and a cafe (and it's licensed).
I still have a couple of spots open for readers so please drop me a line if you're interested, or pass this onto any fannish friends in melbourne. Each reader will get 20 mins so they can talk about fanfic, or fandom or their writing, and also read a fic. You don't have to write anything scpially - just pull out one of you classics ;D Any fandom, any pairing, any rating is welcome.
I would also be interested if fan artists or vidders wish to display their work on the night.
I am really excited for this. Melbourne is a city that loves writing, but events are usually about people who are published and I want to celebrate the talent and awesomeness of fanfiction and the community around.
And get drunk with fangirls :D
