Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Have your friends ever referred to you as a fanatic?  Do you have a favorite anime/manga, book, movie, cartoon, play/musical, comic, TV show, or game that you like so much that you want to write about it and tell the world?  Fan fiction is fantasy where you can be the main character and meet your favorite singer, band, actor, actress, writer, professional athlete, or anyone that you’ve always wanted to meet. In this class, we will talk about fan fiction factions, genres, tropes, and crossovers, read fan fiction, and learn how to self-publish right away on sites such as,, and  And, of course, we will unleash our inner fanatic and write and share plenty of our own fan fiction.
