Help spread the word on podfic (you don't need to be a podficcer to join in!). pod_aware || pod_aware
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 pod_aware is here to help with both of those things!
How are we going to do this? For one week (November 12-18) 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 but 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 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!
To see the daily themes this year will be: November 12: How We Podfic (creation and consumption) November 13: Podfic Fandom (where to go to get started, places to hang out, atmosphere, etc.) November 14: Recs (share some, talk about your favourite rec'ers or amplirecathon, etc.) November 15: Acting (how podficcers approach the text, how various styles are received, etc.) November 16: Special Effects (music, sounds effects, voices, etc. How to add them as a creator, how you enjoy them as a listener) November 17: Collaboration (between multiple podficcers, podficcers and the author, beta, coverartists, etc.) November 18: Feedback (back by popular demand)
