FanFiction, FanArt, FanPoetry for Teens at APL

Amesbury Public Library invites teens to their Summer Fan Fiction workshop series! What is fanfiction?  Fanfiction refers to stories produced by fans based on plot lines and characters from either a single source text or multiple sources; these fan-created narratives often take the pre-existing storyworld in a new, sometimes bizarre, direction. While the activities of fans may take many forms, writing stories deriving from one or more source texts has long been the most popular way of showing their passion for a particular fictional universe.  For 7th-12th grade.
