Critical Fan Toolkit: Your Experience!
Thank you for agreeing to beta the Critical Fan Toolkit (, Cara Marta Messina's digital and open-access dissertation.

In fandoms, beta-ing means a text being reviewed/edited before being shared publicly. The CFT has already been public, but users' input is ALWAYS important and, unlike how publishing fanfiction often works, websites are often edited constantly to meet users' needs.

For this survey, please go through the Critical Fan Toolkit and think about your experience on the website. What do you find interesting? What would you like to see more of? What may be challenging or hard to navigate? Are there any weird bugs?

Then, fill out this survey to provide your feedback!

I much appreciate any feedback offered and will take it into consideration as I finalize my dissertation and continue to edit it in the future. Your responses will only be seen by me!

Thank you!

Cara Marta Messina
PhD Candidate at the Northeastern University English Department (Writing & Rhetoric)
