Fanfiction: it's literature by fans, for fans, and it's high time it got the recognition it deserves! When people need more than the source material has to offer, they turn to fanfiction--and some of today's best authors are proud to have gotten their start in fanfic; after all the fanfic mines are where so many writers learn how to hit readers right in the feels, how to ratchet up tension, and how to tell a compelling story. Authors Tamsyn Muir (Gideon the Ninth), Tochi Onyebuchi (Riot Baby), Bo Bolander (The Only Harmless Great Thing), and Katharine Duckett (Miranda in Milan) will discuss everyone's secret (or not so secret) OTPs, AUs, crossover fics, and more. From Gundam Wing to Kingdom Hearts to Shakespeare, fanfic has been a proving ground for young authors learning to hone their craft, so come celebrate your fandom and meet some fellow fic-lovers.
