Excerpts

What’s the most fun thing to you about volunteering for the OTW?

The best thing is the people I work with, hands down. Karen and Kristina (editors of TWC) are amazing to work with and have taught me so much, and all of our volunteers are both incredibly hardworking and really a pleasure to work with. But I have to admit there are other perks to doing what I do, too. Getting to be the first person to read some of these articles? Yes, please! I’m also the kind of person who quite enjoys both wrangling the big picture and digging into the small details of things, which probably means I’m in exactly the right job.

What fannish things do you like to do?

I’m a fanfic writer from way back. Way, way back. Not quite to zine-only era, but definitely back to usenet era. That’s always been my joy and my primary fannish activity, through several fandoms. I’ve also been an RPer (both pen-and-paper and later online) since I was a teenager. Comic-book fan, voracious reader, gamer, and all-around pan-media consumer and transformer. It would not be a stretch to say that most of my life is fannish in some way.
