It’s a Fanmade World: From One Direction to Soderbergh is a 2015 collection of nine essays and posts published by, the entertainment news website of New York Magazine, and published in the magazine's March 9, 2015 edition.

The main essays, "You Belong to Me", and "A Fanfiction Syllabus" generated the most fan comments. The collection was praised for its attention to fanworks other than fanfiction, with its sections on fan film trailers, fan translations of video games, and Grateful Dead envelope fanart. However, fan comments faulted "A Fanfiction Syllabus" in particular for being too focused on dudeslash, on slash in general, and for its choice of "classic examples" of fanfiction.
