Podfic is this awesome fanwork where dedicated fans create audiobooks of fanfic.

The podfic community is still small enough that many in fandom have never heard of this fun fanwork. Those of us that love podfic love it a lot and sometimes we don't take the time to talk about that enough. So [community profile] pod_aware is here to help with both of those things!

How are we going to do this? For one week (November 10-14) every day there will be a topic about podfic, which participants can talk about and/or spread the word about. For each day's topic, we're going to have a little blurb explaining a bit about the daily topic with a link back to the conversation happening.

Those of us who already know about podfic can give our thoughts on the subject, creating a resource for those who don't know about podfic and want to learn more.

And we're going to spread awareness by making stuff! What kind of stuff? Anything! It doesn't have to be related to podfic at all! You can write fic, you can give recs, you can bake cookies, or just write a post, whatever! All we ask is that you include that little blurb wherever you post your fanwork (and we encourage you to post it anywhere/everywhere). That way fans that have never heard of podfic before can find out what it's all about!

We're still sharing ideas for what the official themes of the year will be. Please check out those posts to chime in (DW | LJ | tumblr).

If you'd like to help spread the word about this comm, please feel free to reblog us on tumblr or use this banner:

At month's end buffyversetop5 reopens for its 2014 session. Recs to any and all types of fan-created Buffyverse works are eligible so long as they were created or continued in 2014.

Gifting your fellow fans some lovely items to start the coming year with is a great way to celebrate the holiday season, and spread a little cheer to all those wonderful writers, artists, vidders, podficcers, mods, and more who have given you something to smile (or maybe cry) about during 2014. So after all the eating, drinking, and general merrymaking is done, don't forget about the Buffyverse :) We'll be opening at midnight GMT on January 1st (6 PM on the 31st in the U.S.) and will remain open through midnight UTC on January 19th.

If you want to help spread the news, several artists have made us some starter treats to entice friends to the party. If you have any questions about the session, ask them here!

Feel free to grab and enjoy!

You can post anything, for any of the themes, or something unrelated to the themes this weekend and it'll be included in pod_aware

We didn't get a podcast turned in for this day, sorry!
