The Fan Meta Reader

The Fan Meta Reader 2015 Masterpost

It really does take a village to bring you The Fan Meta Reader, and I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who made this year’s posts possible, including every writer who gave their permission to have their work posted here, the unflagging assistance of co-curators Jess Glass and Kirsty Worrow, and everyone who recommended meta for inclusion in 2015.  It was a terrific year for fan analysis and criticism – our great thanks to everyone who read and spread the word this past year!
