POWA Fanzine Project

POWA is working on a big collaborative project, open to all members of the community!

We are looking for articles, reviews, essays, short stories, art and everything in between – anything related to our love and passion for anime, otaku or general fandom culture. We’re hoping to compile the various efforts by the community into a regular magazine, published both online and in print.

It will be a great way to share with other members of the community, stretch creative and analytical muscles and create a time capsule of the year each volume is published. All content will be wholly owned by its creators and they will be credited however they choose to be.

The POWA Committee will serve as editors for the project and will work with members to finalise every idea brought to us. Exact plans for the length and format will be decided as community members bring forward content.

Discussion of ideas, suggestions and progress on Fanzine content will be ongoing in the #powa-creates room of our Discord server. We welcome all ideas and content, provided it fits within POWA’s content guidelines!

Below is an example of what a fanzine from POWA could look like, including ideas for content the community could offer. Please note that neither the layout of the magazine itself nor the article example inside is necessarily representative of the final version.

The Great POWA Mascot Quest

POWA is on the hunt for a new mascot and we need YOU to help us!

We’re looking to make a design that fits with the POWA community so we’re going directly to them. What would make your perfect POWA mascot? What would they look like? How would they act? You can answer these questions, as well as provide visual references in this survey.

The POWA Committee hopes to gather responses and analyse the likes, trends and ideas in order to create a character reference sheet that can be given to a professional artist. The timeline of this project is TBD, so feel free to think about your responses before you submit!

Discuss, ask questions and throw ideas around in the #mascot-quest room of our community Discord server.

POWA Bunnings Sausage Sizzle

POWA is fundraising through a good old fashioned Bunnings Sausage Sizzle!

That’s right we’ll be at the Joondalup Bunnings from morning till noon hoping to fund the next year of events and community engagement. If you’re in the area or want to help the club out, come on down sometime during the day and grab a snag! We’ll be located in the underground carpark.
Sausages will be $2.50 and a variety of drinks will be available for $1.50 – the standard price for both.

Money raised from this event will help in the coming Committee year with things such as;

  • – Regular event room bookings at Joondalup library
  • – Special event room bookings outside Joondalup library
  • – Prizes for the POWA community
  • – Hosting events run by the POWA community
  • – Expanding the POWA community through advertising and special events
  • – And more…

The Facebook event can be found here.

We look forward to seeing you there!
