Welcome to This Week in Fandom, the OTW’s roundup of things which are happening. Before we start, did you know that International Fanworks Day is next week? There are all kinds of activities going on, including fandom-themed online games and a feedback fest. Plus, we recently posted some of your mini essays on what fanworks mean to you. Go check them out! (And please note that, due to this event, there will be no This Week in Fandom next week.)
On a similar note, Den of Geek is asking for your stories about how fandom changed your life for the better. They plan to compile them into an uplifting post on their site soon. Even if you’re not feeling up to sharing your own story, the stories already shared in the comments are heartwarming and worth a read.
