DESCRIPTION

Fanfiction has spurred the growth of countless fictional universes and has given space for many Young Adult authors to develop their craft. Join the authors as they share some of their favourite fanfiction and examine why this genre still needs to defend itself as a legitimate form of writing to a larger audience.

This session is conceptualised by SWF Youth Curators and co-presented with Singapore Book Council.

FEATURING

Irie Aman is an interdisciplinary artist who believes in nurturing and honouring both non-textual and textual parts of one’s self. Irie’s passions range from mental health to art to advocacy, and they believe these can (and should) be combined. They are the editor-in-chief of The Local Rebel, an intersectional feminist print zine, and organize monthly open mic nights at destination: INK. They are part of /s@ber, a writing collective for the millennials of Sing Lit Station. You can also find their work on thesummerchild.net
