Cassandra Clare. Sarah Rees Brennan. E.L. James. If you've heard of these names, you probably know they are insanely popular authors who have made it big with the likes of The Mortal Instruments, The Demon's Lexicon, and 50 Shades of Grey, respectively. But did you know these authors first started off writing fanfiction for movies like Harry Potter or Twilight?
Fanfiction has been around for decades, but with the rise of these successful authors and many others like them, it's become an insanely popular pastime for young writers and a very trendy hobby. To celebrate teen authors who love writing stories based on their favourite characters, shows, movies, books, and video games, Cedarbrae Library will be hosting the Teen Fanfiction Writers' Coalition.
On the last Friday of every month, beginning April 25, from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.
Cedarbrae Library, 2cd Floor, Teen Zone
This group is open to all youth ages 12 to 18. It doesn't matter whether you're a seasoned fanfic writer or don't yet know what AO3 or Fanfiction.net are; we want to meet you and hear your stories, whatever they might be.
We also encourage any original writing you’d like to share. Most importantly, all ships and fandoms are welcome here (don't know what those are yet? Join the group to find out). This is a 100% safe space for anything you happen to support and like writing about. Tell your friends. Get your friends to tell their friends.
Fanfic Fridays @Cedarbrae are for everyone, and we want to see a complete fanfiction takeover!
To register or learn more about the group, you can call 416-396-8850 or ask for Nancy-Anne. Be sure to sign up early to beat the rush!
