Ad Astra APA 2014 (2MB)

What is an (APA) Amateur Press Association? APAs were a type of print-based forum that allowed for widely distributed groups of people to discuss a common interest together prior to the emergence of electronic bulletin boards or the Internet; there are still APAs produced today in 2014, though much fewer in numbers than they were in the 20th Century.

  • Ad Astra APA is intended as a one-shot APAzine (though, if there is enough interest, it could become a regular Ad Astra convention event) that is open to convention members attending Ad Astra 2014.

  • For this APA, the minac (minimum activity) will be two pages of material and the maximum activity will be five pages -- content can be submitted from April 4th at 12:01 AM till April 5 at 11:59 PM using the following email address:

  • Or by hunting down the Co-ordinating Editor, Neil Jamieson-Williams at Ad Astra 2014.

As this is an APAzine, the Co-ordinating Editor is more of a master collator -- deciding such things as which order the submissions appear in and deciding if content is too inappropriate (excessive vulgar language, erotica/porn, sexist/ethnocentric/racist/homophobic themes, you get the drift...) to include. Otherwise, what is submitted gets included in the final zine. All submissions must be for Windows users in doc/docx/pdf format and for Apple users in pdf format.

As this is a wee bit of an experiment, I have no idea as to whether or not there will be any submissions let alone what type of submissions will be received.

Ad Astra APA is sponsored in part, by SWILL ( winner of the 2011 Elron and the 2011 Faned awards.
