Dixie Owen was a Star Trek fan writer and fanzine publisher. She did reviews for Fanzine Review 'Zine.

"Letterzine Columnist, Photographer, Star Trek Welcommittee worker. Dixie was an original pistol who always made her presence known with her distinctive voice. She worked on the vastly popular letterzine, Interstat, contributing a regular column on all the entertainment news to come out of Hollywood, the rumors, the latest tidbits of information coming into the STW, for which she worked, from TPTB and other sources. In those early days of fandom, letterzines, which were published and distributed on a regular, often monthly or bi-monthly schedule, were the primary means of communication among fans around the world as well as the states. They were our Listservs, our mailing lists, our forerunner of the chat rooms. An active member of Bill Shatner's fan fellowship, Dixe was one of a group who were allowed to visit the set of ST IV: The Voyage Home while it was filming. Her photographs of that club's events were widely reproduced for everyone's enjoyment. She was always seen toting her camera and snapping pictures of unsuspecting fen. Dixie was a welcomed attendee at the Baltimore/Washington K/S cons in the early '80s." [1]
