The Best Fan Writer Hugo category was established in 1967 and has been one of the Hugo categories ever since.
The category recognizes fan writing as distinct from professional writing. The latter is fiction written for pay. Fan writing is generally non-fiction (though fiction is eligible) written for pleasure (or egoboo) and not for pay. It can be about SF or about fandom or, really, anything that fans enjoy reading.
Fan writing historically appeared primarily in fanzines, but it is definitely not limited to fanzines and today is probably more likely to be found on the web.
