Getting to take over control of Snippets was incredibly exciting.
As well as enjoying contributing to Snippets, it's always a fantastic read! Learning about how other people do their crafts and what they obsess over is fascinating for me; that's probably why I came up with the idea of the Fandom Issue.
Cut Out & Keep is full of Fans - even if they don't know it - and it's been fantastic getting to see the things people are passionate enough to write about. Our coverstars Nika and Amy have been utterly fantastic, and it's been an honour to work with so many passionate and talented writers.
Fandom isn't just about loving a movie, comic or what-have-you - it's about connecting with other people who feel the same way you do. Fandoms are subcultures - inclusive, accepting and understanding. Fandoms spark creativity and inspire us to make something equally great.
All you need is an open mind.
