I first came across this a few years ago. I happened to stumble into it again, yesterday. The articles are written by those who were active in some of the popular fandoms of the time. They were "published" between 1999 and 2006.
The Fan Fic Symposium

A lot of these are coming from a fan fiction culture most of us have not participated in. Some won't really have much to offer here and now. Sometimes they have their own language. You can look up unfamiliar terms here: Fan Fiction Dictionary. However, some of the articles are universally applicable, or even interesting because of the ways the fan fiction cultures can differ. Some I would recommend as food for thought are in a list to follow. This does not mean I agree with every article that is listed. It just means reading them was interesting to me. :think
