Since creating Florida Fandom 2011 we have been wanting to do another one. FF 2011
had the largest circulation of any other issue. The New FF will be a yearly coming
out in October of each year. We are looking for contributions for this years issue,
from people who have done work for Florida Fandom in the past or other fan projects
Ruth and I have worked on in the past, and from people new to Florida Fandom. To
be part of this you do not need to live in Florida or even like Florida. We are not
working on Florida Fandom in East Tennessee. The normal pay for a fanzine contribution
was a free copy of the zine since most Fanzines stayed in the red and person who
contributed the art, article, or story would retain the copyright to their contribution.
And that is the pay for this and future issues, since it is being given away free
there will be no profit -
Update is our what’s happening page. It’s a listing for clubs, zines, stores, on-
CLUBS: Name of club, were located, who can join, dues, when are meeting, and a little about clubs.
ZINES: Name, cost, were to get, size and format, publisher/editor, what it is about.
STORES: Name, Address, hours of business, a little about, web site if you have one. (Make sure you include city and state with address)
CONS: Name, dates, address of con, address to join or get more information, website if you have one. Information of the con, guest, panels, films.
Theses were self bios on your fanish life. So that we could know a little more about
the person who’s done art, written a LOC, wrote a story or an article or review.
At least that was the way it was…now some of you may want to write it that way and
if you are new to FF that's fine, but to you old Farts like me, a what you are up
to now would be great be great. Let us know what you been doing these last two or
three decades (or more). Remember you are writing it -
What we are looking for are large (Full, half, and ¼ Page), Spot illos, cartoons, small strips. They should related to comics, SF&F, Star Trek, Star Wars,horror, Superhero movies, TV Shows. They can be old or new. If possible send them in JPEG format. We will also need covers.
This covers a lot. Reviews of comics, movies, books or TV Shows. Articles about Fandom, Pros, celebrities, cons, almost anything relating to comics and SF&F. Short fiction. Quizzes, Puzzles, Poems, Filk Songs, LOC. Need to be in doc, docx, or text format except puzzles which should be in JPEG format.
Looking for photos of cons, costume parties/contest, and other fan related events.
These can be both old and new. Love to see pictures of some of the cons in South
Florida like Palm Beach Con I and the mini-
In almost every issue of FF there were ads. Most were mine at first then we started
trading ads with other zines. Some of the ads had the best artwork in them and added
to the zine. For a free ad they most: Be related to a topic of interest to the zine.
They must be in JPEG format. They have art or graphics in them. They should be done
so that size doesn’t matter as we may use them as large as full page or as small
as ¼ page. These are filler. We will even take some classified type ad, as this
can sometimes be used as filler at the bottom of a page. Since these are filler
they may not be printed -
Send items to firstname.lastname@example.org .This email address is only for contributions to the zine including LOC.
