The March Meta Matters Challenge

Dates: March 1 to April 1

While creators have often used multiple sites to host their works, one type of work has generally been left out of fans' efforts at archiving and preserving fanworks -- meta. In many cases, meta posts have not been copied anywhere else other than the location where they were first posted, leaving them particularly vulnerable to loss.

So what if we can make a small dent in getting it saved? The March Meta Matters Challenge is focused on not just new meta, but making sure older meta gets a chance to be read and remain a part of fandom history. That's also why the challenge will be using the Archive of Our Own as a destination site.

The MMM Challenge will be a low stress event that provides you reminders and company as you locate and copy over your content. The challenge will also give you an opportunity to promote the meta you're preserving as well as some prompts to write new meta!
