    I really like Jessica Hautsch, she often appears on Conversations with Dead People podcast (one of my favourites) and I follow her on twitter, though she rarely tweets about Buffy.

      What Fan Fiction Teaches That the Classroom Doesn’t:

      https://www.theatlantic.com/educatio...riting/599197/

      I do have to say though that I feel the article looks upon fanfiction as a way of training for how to be writing original fiction. I know that many fanfic writers do go on to publish original fiction and it makes me proud and of course happy for them. But there are also writers who already have published original fiction and still write fanfiction. And there are also writers who never want to write original fiction. Fanfiction isn't some kind of a lesser fiction that one writes while trying to become more than just a fanfiction writer. It is an art form of its own. It's fun. It's fandom. It's community. It's a way of writing and reading.

      What do you think?

        Fanfic writing is a very paticular type of writng. It has to be as good, as engrossing, as exciting as other fictional writing, but it also has be represent something that went before it. It takes real skill to do both

          Not sure if this link to a really interesting article about fan fiction will work. Knowing my (lack of) skillz, probably not.

            Analysis shows that the more feedback a writer gets, the better their vocab becomes. I think that's so interesting, as I don't tend to leave much feedback.

              loving this thread.
              my take on fanfiction is that everyone writes it, especially professional writers. The new stories on the last series of Poldark were entirely new storylines and characters invented by the adapters. Susan Hill and PD James have written sequels to Rebecca. Etc, etc, etc.

              It’s all homage and tribute.

              sorry to post that link the second time after flow did a much better job than I.

              and well done AO3. Nice work.

                Agatha Christie's Poirot is now written by Sophie Hannah (I think) and Anthony Horowitz now writes James Bond books, and someone else is writing Sherlock Holmes books, but I can't remember who. They could all be seen as fanfic.
