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.
