Manuscript Bureau
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
The mundane APAs usually have an office for supplying the printers with material sent in by writers, and it was assumed that FAPA needed one. In early 1938 Moskowitz, who had become the most prolific fan writer and was frequently called on for material, announced a service whereby he would receive mss from fan writers and supply to publishers on request as much material as they might need. It was suggested that this bureau be hooked up to FAPA, which at that time wasn't getting as much stuff for the mailings as it needed; but this idea was ruled out by the V-P. When New Fandom was established, the Manuscript Bureau became one of its most active parts, and supplied quite a lot of material to new and struggling fanzines, especially those in the Cosmic group. With the coming of Third Fandom the Bureau ceased to be heard of; individzines have little need for such service.

The N3F has a Manuscript Bureau which is much used by its fanzine-publishing members like Racy Higgs, but of it least said is soonest mended.

It was suggested that this bureau be hooked up to the FAPA, which at that time wasn't getting as much stuff from the mailings as it needed. This idea was dropped after the vice-president's decision.
