The International Day of Femslash is a day of celebration!
On the 20th July, 2013, the on-line femslash community is set to celebrate the 6th annual International Day of Femslash; an opportunity to raise its head high and proclaim to the world its delight in all things femslash. So, whether you’re a seasoned writer, with hordes of ardent fans, or a timid newcomer, you have the chance to make your voice heard and help put femslash well and truly on the map.
Simply post your stories, videos, graphics, essays, poems or other femslash related works to an archive, community, group or forum on 20th July, 2013, to show your support. Where you choose to post your creative efforts is up to you; although, we do hope to gather together an extensive list of web-sites, lj communities, Yahoo Groups and forums which support our efforts, but feel free to post widely to wherever femslash is welcome.
For too many years, femslash has been treated as the distant cousin to the het and slash king and queen of fandom, so this is our opportunity to demonstrate to ourselves, as much as anyone else, that we are a force to be reckoned with.
Spread the Word
Our aim is to provoke a positive avalanche of femslash material from across a wide range of fandoms, languages and geographical locations. However, the only way we’re going to manage to do this is if everybody pulls together and not only posts on the day, but spreads the word beforehand so that as many people as possible are aware of the event.
Show Your Support
A large selection of banners, icons and other graphics have already been produced and are available for you to download and display on your web-site, blog or forum. You can also add your site, forum, community or group to the list of those supporting the International Day of Femslash and let potential contributors know that they are more than welcome to submit or post their works for inclusion on the day. If you plan to post a contribution to the deluge of femslash we’re expecting, why not sign up now and show your support? Then spread the word to all your friends and encourage them to join.
This is indeed a celebration. So come and join the fun.
