This year, April Showers is back as a Fanlore-only event! We invite you to bring us fannish April showers by digging out those old zines, memories of past cons, archived personal webpages, tales of shipwars and fannish events, and more! Help us celebrate fandom's history and diversity by telling your tales on Fanlore.
April Showers is an annual event started in 2011, originally a collaboration between Fanlore and our sister project, Archive of Our Own. Its purpose is to celebrate and preserve fannish history by revisiting old fandoms and promoting news ones. Read more about April Showers on Fanlore.
We are thrilled to also announce that Fanlore is now on Tumblr! Check us out at otw-fanlore.
To help kick of April Showers, we will be highlighting a different fandom every day of the month on our Tumblr and Twitter. Follow us at otw-fanlore and fanlore_news and look for the hashtag #OTWAprilShowers!
