One-off recs are VITAL for our grab-bag and trope lists. If you love a story and would like to see it included in a future issue of the newsletter, please fill out this form. (Vids, comics, and other fanworks are also encouraged, though these fields are geared towards fic—drop us a message if you want to include more information!)
A few quick notes to address some consistent issues we see:
1) Please fill out *both* "backstory" and "rec," and please, please, please include any content warnings that apply. For "backstory," you don't have to, like, explain the plot of Star Wars or whatever—just situate us in a sentence or two, so we know what we're getting into.
2) We don't accept self-recs. That being said, we encourage our guest reccers to share their own work, so if you do a guest rec list or explainer for us, please include a link to your stuff!
3) We won't share recs that aren't broadly available to the public—locked-to-archive-members AO3 fics are totally fine, but Google doc copies of fics that have been taken down are not. We have no strong feelings about sharing the latter amongst friends, but we're not comfortable sharing it with thousands of people, especially if we don't know the intentions of the original author when they took their stuff down.
4) We have no strong feelings about original works published in fannish spaces like the AO3, but these submissions should be *fanworks*.
