Name:AoS Newsletter
Posting Access:Anybody
Community description:Age of Sail fandom newsletter
A newsletter for Age of Sail fandom happenings.

Fandoms that fall within the bounds of this community:

* 18th-19th century naval/seafaring fandoms (Pirates of the Caribbean, Hornblower, Aubrey-Maturin, Temeraire, etc)
* 18th-19th century military fandoms (eg. Sharpe)
* 18th-19th century civilian fandoms (eg. Jane Austen, Les Mis, historical RPF) at the discretion of the moderators

Topics which will be reported on:

* Age of Sail fanfic, fanart, vids, and other creative endeavours
* Relevant fannish meta and discussions
* Community news and challenges
* Items of historical interest related to Age of Sail


1. Posts will only be reported if they are current, i.e. if they have happened since the last despatch. At the moderators' discretion, articles may be posted which should have gone in the previous issue, but only if they are of particular interest.

2. Fanfic will be subject to moderator discretion on the basis of length, lack of header info, etc. We try to be inclusive and consistent in our application of our policies, and there are no judgements made on the quality of any of the fics we link to.

3. Icon posts are only linked if there are more than 10 icons in the post. Multi-fandom posts that are not exclusively Age of Sail are only linked if the number of AoS icons in the post is large (at moderator discretion).

4. Strong preference will be given to links on DW; the primary exception to this is news articles and other such items of historical interest.

For further information about items suitable for inclusion, please read this post.

The editors watch a number of AoS and related communities for news and announcements, but if you have anything you think we might miss, feel free to post a comment at any time linking to a relevant post. The reading list for this newsletter is at [personal profile] despatch_reader; comment to this post if you'd like to be added to the list.

This version of the newsletter was started by [personal profile] sharpiefan, who was inspired to start a DW version of the much-beloved LJ Despatches. (Imagine that LJ and DW are two different countries needing two different edition of the same newspaper!) I can be reached at steadfast (dot) soldier (at) yahoo (dot) co (dot) uk if you have any questions or problems. Or drop me a PM here!
