When I'm not on Deviant Art, I am starting my career as an English instructor and freelance illustrator/writer. Probably the biggest project I'm working on now is a chapter of a collection of essays textbook my former professor Dr. Amy Robillard is writing, titled "Authorship Contested."
My chapter is solely about Fan Fiction, and how it is shaping the way we not only read, write, but also draw (fan art, fan manga, fan comics, etc.)
I've been researching this topic for years, but now it's finally coming to fruition in this chapter!
Be A Part of My Chapter!
What I'm asking is for your input as to how you view Fan Fiction.
In the comments below write your answer to any of the following questions (or all of them! )
1. How is Fan Fiction an original piece of writing? Or is it not?
2. How do you think Fan Fiction affects the writer of the text it is based off of, for better and/or worse?
3. Should Fan Fiction be allowed for reading online? Why/Why Not?
4. What is the value of Fan Fiction?
Should you choose to answer these questions in the comments below, I will potentially use your answers within the chapter I'm writing. The only data I may use other than the comment itself is your username here on DA and the country of origin listed on your page.
If you comment below, you are agreeing for your information to be used in the chapter. Should you want to remain anonymous, please state so in your comment.
Thank you all SO much for participating! I'm hoping to get a lot of feedback to assist me in writing the chapter (which is due in March! I'd better get to work!)
