According to the FAQ:
- The Exchange at Fic Corner is a gen, het, femslash, and slash multifandom secret fiction exchange for kids' and YA book/short story fandoms. The name was ruthlessly stolen from that classic of children's literature, The House at Pooh Corner. Basically? This is for the book fandoms that you loved or would have loved as a kid (even if you just read them for the first time a week ago).
- The Exchange at Fic Corner was inspired by Yuletide (the obscure or rarely written fandoms project) and much of the format and rules are based off that exchange.
Nominations & signups generally occur in July, with the archive opening in September.
102 works were written in the main collection, with a further 10 in the treats collection.
68 works were written in the main collection, with a further 15 in the treats collection.
60 works were written in the main collection, with a further 3 in the treats collection. Hhertzof announced when the collection opened that, the following year, Fic Corner would alternate with an exchange for children's television, subsequently named You Can Do That in Fanfiction.
After a year's hiatus for You Can Do That in Fanfiction, Fic Corner re-emerged with 38 works. As there were relatively few gifts compared with previous years, there was no separate Treat Collection.
