Fanzine Stuff no image

Published on September 23rd, 2013 | by Daniel


As you may have seen if you follow us on Twitter, between the RTs  of your banners and us desperately trying to avoid arguments with people saying ‘BUT THERE AINT NO POINT OR NUFFINK’, there have been some rather ominous announcements being made regarding the people who run the fanzine.

Founder of STAND, Seb, who you probably all know (even if it is just from being mates off of the internet) has unfortunately had to step down due to work commitments and the frankly ludicrous demands thrust upon him by his one year old daughter. Similarly, but in slightly less noble circumstances, co-editor Daniel Sandison will soon be forced into a reduced role, to make time for his job/vanity project at Halcyon Magazine, and to allow him to pursue other projects to fund his problematic outerwear habit.

The long and short of it is: STAND NEED A NEW EDITORIAL TEAM

Despite rumours to the contrary, the pay is non-existent and there is very little time for posing, however the coverage that the fanzine is getting, and will continue to get, would be perfect for somebody looking to give more people access to their writing and a great opportunity to hone editorial skills. Think of it as a loan move to a second division French team when you’re about 16.

You’ll probably have to be arsed about football to a certain degree, but we’ll stick a copy of ‘The AMF Handbook’ in the post as soon as you express interest (Remember, ‘No Runners, No Colours & No Fackin Capitalism’… We joke, obviously), but somebody who is already familiar with the fanzine would be ideal.

It’s been a brilliant 12 months creating, and looking after STAND, and it’s with very heavy heart that we are forced to give it away. We’re certain it can go from strength to strength, but we’re just not in a position to give it the time that it deserves at this moment in time.

If you’d like to be involved, send an email to with a short biography, and links to any writing you may have done in the past.

Many thanks & Keep on AMFing. (Sorry)

Dan & Seb
