Community Spotlight: Fire Emblem Writer’s Zine

It’s time to share another pretty radical fan group’s project, and this time, it’s the Fire Emblem Writer’s Zine, a community’s collective publication celebrating the creative talent of writers within the Fire Emblem fandom.

If you’re familiar with the Together We Ride fan zine that we’ve promoted in the past, you may recognize the group involved, as one of its members, Damosel, is part of both the teams of this Writer’s Zine and the TWR zine. Now, there are a couple of differences with the Writer’s Zine, notably how you can enjoy it, and who they support.

For starters, they’re making their zine available as a PDF, meaning that there is no concern for shipping and receiving (a great relief in these trying times). The zine itself features stories and art from each of the mainline games, as well as Heroes and Warriors, coming to over 300 pages of content! Preorders are running until November 1st, and can be placed here. As it’s a PDF, delivery will not be an issue, and the huge amount of stories included can be enjoyed on the go.

The Writer’s Zine is doing this for charity, and the organization that proceeds will go towards is We Need Diverse Books, an organization dedicated to helping provide books to the hands of those in need. WNDB helps by finding and promoting books that connect with those readers, helping them grow as individuals as well as people, and above all, promoting and celebrating diversity (racial, disability, cultural, etc) with the creation and exposure of books that highlight diverse stories and their characters.

If you’d like to follow the efforts of the FEWZ team, follow their Twitter, and you can keep up with their future projects, as well as partnered and endorsed projects. You may even be able to participate in a future edition yourself, or share this with a friend that you think may be interested in the opportunity and they could find some solace with this team or their projects.

If you’d like to support We Need Diverse Books, but either find yourself light on spare money or time right now, you can spread the word of their organization by clicking here for their Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube, and share those links with your friends. Every little bit helps with bringing light to a charitable organization, and even something as following or sharing a group can help bring the attention that they need, to get the results that their beneficiaries deserve.

Fan Feats: Fire Emblem Planner, a big planner with a ton of sides that would compliment any fan’s setup. Preorders open until October 1 or sold-out.

In an attempt to make up for my sorely disappointing previous attempt of promoting impressive fan projects in the past, I’m taking this time to reassess my approach, and have decided to kick off a fan work appreciation series, of which I’m coining as Fan Feats. Kicking off this Fan Feats appreciation and awareness series will be the Fire Emblem Planner, also going by FEH Planner.

This planner contains a beautiful assortment of monthly illustrations, and comes with an optional leather cover, depending on your purchased bundle. It’s a 160+ page [A5 size] planner, with weekly and monthly features (as well as others, such as notes pages, fun themed pages and artist credit pages).

I’ve had a chance to sneak-peek at some of the artwork, and every page is downright gorgeous, themed appropriately for the month and compliments with the alternate merchandise perfectly.
