FCA-L is a mailing list for critical discussion of fannish topics. The name stands for "Fanfic Critics Association List", but the scope of the list moved very quickly beyond discussion of fanfic into more general fannish topics, and wound up being a place for meta of all sorts.

The list started up at least as early as 1998[1], and was very active for several years, only slowing down in the mid-2000s. It was founded by Cereta and Sandy Justine.

FCA-L also had an associated website, the Fanfic Symposium, for essays about fannish topics, which were occasionally referred to or discussed on the list. The Symposium was updated until the end of 2006. The first years the website also had a message board for discussion, that eventually was lost because of a server crash, and replaced by an LJ community ffsymposium.[2]
