Podfic is this awesome fanwork where dedicated fans create audiobooks of fanfic.

The podfic community is still small enough that many in fandom have never heard of this fun fanwork. Those of us that love podfic love it a lot and sometimes we don't take the time to talk about that enough. So [community profile] pod_aware is here to help with both of those things!

How are we going to do this? For one week (November 10-14) every day there will be a topic about podfic, which participants can talk about and/or spread the word about. For each day's topic, we're going to have a little blurb explaining a bit about the daily topic with a link back to the conversation happening.

Those of us who already know about podfic can give our thoughts on the subject, creating a resource for those who don't know about podfic and want to learn more.

And we're going to spread awareness by making stuff! What kind of stuff? Anything! It doesn't have to be related to podfic at all! You can write fic, you can give recs, you can bake cookies, or just write a post, whatever! All we ask is that you include that little blurb wherever you post your fanwork (and we encourage you to post it anywhere/everywhere). That way fans that have never heard of podfic before can find out what it's all about!

We're still sharing ideas for what the official themes of the year will be. Please check out those posts to chime in (DW | LJ | tumblr).

If you'd like to help spread the word about this comm, please feel free to reblog us on tumblr or use this banner:

In honour of [community profile] pod_aware​, [personal profile] bessyboo​ organized a podcast with [personal profile] cantarina​, [personal profile] klb​, and myself where we talked about the various challenges we've run for podfics.

Quick note: In the podcast we talk about an editing chatroom and how it would be nice if it had scheduled times, luckily, that is now a thing! Check out the [twitter.com profile] AudioSnippers!

Podfic isn't made in a vacuum and can be heavily influenced by or can rely upon other fanworks to exist. From the fic a podfic is of, to the coverart, to collaborations, podficcers often work with other fans to create their art. Check out pod_aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr to learn more.

During the week of posting, each morning in the official post for the day a podcast on the day's topic is included. If you are interested in organizing/being on one of the official podcasts, please leave a comment here.

If there are more people than is feasible for a single podcast, we can organize multiple podcasts for that day, so don't be shy about signing up, the more voices and opinions, the better!

Thank you to everyone who made suggestions about what the topics for this year should be; I couldn't have done this without all the great input I got. Because [community profile] pod_aware is for anyone interested in podfic, I've merged some of the ideas together, or put them under a broader heading so that non-podficcers can participate as well.

Without further ado, here are the topics:

November 10: The History of Podfic
This can be the overall history of podfic or your personal history with it.

November 11: Podfic and Other (Fan)Works
It's pretty rare for a podfic to not be related to another fanwork, the most obvious being the fic it's a recording of, but it also other works like cover art, fanart, or fanmixes. What is podfic's relation to other fan audio works? Or non-fannish works like audiobooks?

November 12: Podfic Community and Beyond
As the popularity of podfic grows, podficcers start spreading out and popping up all over the place. Where are those interested in podfic hanging out these days and how are they supporting each other?

November 13: Personal Preferences
Everyone has personal preferences when listening to or creating podfics: length, music, story telling style, rating, etc. This is a chance to talk about some of your favourites, or about various stylistic choices.

November 14: Podfic in the Broader Fannish Context
Why does podfic take off in some fandoms more than others? How can we encourage it in fandoms? Get podfic included in more fannish challenges/exchanges? How is podfic perceived by those who aren't as familiar with it?

November is just around the corner, so you know what that means! Pod Aware! This year Pod Aware will run from November 10-14*, but I need your help to make this happen!

First thing we need, are some suggestions for the daily topics.
Our first round's topics were: Podfic 101/Why We Podfic, Blanket Permission, Author/Podficcer Relationships, Accents, Feedback, Repodding, and Encouraging Podfic.
The topics of our second round were: How We Podfic, Podfic Fandom, Recs, Acting, Special Effects, Collaboration, and Feedback.

As you can see some of those topics have been repeated, and we can repeat them again this year if people want or we can introduce new topics, but I need to know what people are interested in.

Secondly, I need volunteers. I'll need help creating the round up posts, which link to all the entries from the previous day. I'll also need help creating the podcasts that get posted each day.

Please comment to volunteer or share ideas.

*I initially listed the 13-17 as the days, but that's because I fail and was looking at the month of October instead of November.

[community profile] pod_aware is officially over for 2012! We had lots of great submissions and discussions. I know some of us got caught up in discussions/RL/ran out of time and weren't able to participate during the week like they wanted, so for the next week, if you still want to do something for [community profile] pod_aware you can! Just drop me a link and I'll have your work added to the masterlists.
