An article entitled "Elven Like Me" external link appeared in the New York publication The Village Voice in February of 2001. The impending publication of this article spurred a lot of the initial activity in getting Otherkin.Net shaped into a community resource back around 2000.

This article external link from the March 2001 issue of Fate magazine was an early published article written by someone who is herself otherkin.

Danielle Kirby external link has written several papers on otherkin, including "From Pulp Fiction to Revealed Text: A Study of the Role of Text in the Otherkin Community" (2016), some of which can be read here on Google Books offsite link; "Alternative Worlds: Metaphysical Questioning and Virtual Community Amongst the Otherkin offsite link" (2012); and Fantasy and Belief: Alternative Religions, Popular Narratives, and Digital Cultures (2014).

Naya Aerodiode says, "I Believe in Otherkin" external link

An interview with a Daoine Sithe [sic] named Luke external link. Some of the responses in this intervew strike me as rather odd ("Innate Species Persona"? a "dark-elfkin" dating a "light-elfkin" would "raise some eyebrows"?), but I link to it here for general interest and perspective.
