Fanwriting (mine)
I'm starting to look for work (at least part-time) as we prepare to move back to Ann Arbor. As part of that process, I have started to put together a list of my publications. I'm still working on the list of my professional publications, but I *think* I have a complete list of items (not including Letters of Comment, or LoCs) published in Fanzines. (If you think of any omissions, please let me know.) I'm not including editorials for the fanzines I've edited, and of course I've written articles for progress reports and convention program books, which is also fanwriting. But I'm sticking to internal fanzine content, here.

TAFF Reports etc:
    "Anne and Brian for TAFF," The Drink Tank Issue 231: TAFF in Action [PDF], ed. by Chris Garcia, 2009

    "Anne and Brian Trip Through Corflu", Argentus 10 [PDF] ed. Steven H Silver, December 2010

    "221b Baker Street; Fictional Flat a Monument to The Great Sleuth", by Anne [and Brian] Gray, Journey Planet 11, [PDF] ed. James Bacon and Chris Garcia, December 2011

Other Fanzine Publications:
    "Invitation and Maintenance of Guests of Honor," MidFanzine 1: First Steps [PDF] ed. by Anne KG Murphy. Fall 2002

    "Rumors of SFOHA's Demise Highly Exaggerated," Sleight of Hand 1, [PDF] ed. by John Teehan. Spring/Summer 2002

    "And Then I May Go" (poem), MidFanzine 2: Explorations [PDF] ed. by Anne KG Murphy. Spring 2003

    "Promoting Cord Blood Donation," MidFanzine #5: Onward! [PDF], ed. by Anne K. Gray. November 2010

    "SF Wiki Gardening: Got a Digital Thumb?" Drink Tank 300, p. 160. [PDF] ed. Chris Garcia and James Bacon, November 2011 With complete links)

    "Aiming for Gender Parity is a Positive Process," Journey Planet 13, [PDF] ed. by Chris Garcia and James Bacon, with guest editors Helen Montgomery and Emma J. King, July 2012

One of these I discovered by searching efanzines.com, which continues to be an essential and wonderful site. Most of these .pdf links lead there as well.

While I do like Drink Tank and Journey Planet as fanzines, I feel I should note that the main reason I keep writing for them is I keep getting invited to do so. I'm interested in writing for others, I'm just less sure what anybody else might like to receive from me. If you might like for me to write for your fanzine, sending me your theme or some topic suggestions and a deadline 1-3 months ahead of time *seriously* increases the chances I'll write something. Editorial requests. They work. :)

Edited to Add: I just realized I left out reviews I did for Emerald City. I was on staff of the 'zine at the time, but of course it's not like we were getting paid... it was all a labor of love.

That was a lot more than I remembered writing.

ETA: I have now posted a page on my website for this kind of material.

Current Mood: accomplishedaccomplished

Now I want to know whether I could ask you to improve a specific Wikivoyage or Wikipedia page if I asked you enough time in advance. :-)

Does this three-month paid opportunity https://live.gnome.org/OutreachProgramForWomen strike you as interesting?

Good for you for compiling this list.

...of course I've written articles for progress reports and convention program books, which is also fanwriting.

And may be worth collecting as well. As you know, one day I woke up and realized that over 20 years or so, I had written quite a few program-book biographical essays for various cons. If you think your writings might have interest beyond the weekend of a con, put 'em online.

But look at me-- lecturing you about preserving fan history!

Hey, it's been ten years since I started fanwriting and I only just now started making and keeping a list. I think I deserve a little lecturing. :)

I'm also pulling notable posts from this blog, which is at least seven years old. Today I've been compiling posts from my work as liaison to Neil Gaiman at various events, which brought my attention to a Penguicon convention report in Emerald City that I'd missed/forgotten in my earlier review. The file wasn't even in my folder labeled "Anne's Articles" in the Emerald City folder on my hard drive. (I just fixed that, and added it to the list above.)
