I Guess You Could Say I'm A Fan


I Guess You Could Say I’m A Fan

Sat 02 Oct , 11.00pm – 12.00am AEST

The history of fanfiction goes much further back than you might think- Even Dickens was followed by smutty retellings of his many novels, Sherlock Holmes launched a legion of non-cannon stories, Kirk/Spock from Star Trek continues to thrive to this very day, and one could argue (perhaps not very convincingly) that the vast majority of Greek Mythology is just fanfiction of other Greek Mythology. In I Guess You Could Say I’m A Fan, a collection of our writers have been tasked with writing a piece of fanfic for any media of their choosing. Join as they fanfic their way into our hearts.

Support NYWF
The National Young Writers’ Festival is a non-profit organisation made by and for young artists to help foster a sense of community and allow young writers to connect, share skills and hone their craft. We pride ourselves on paying all writers programmed for the festival but we are reliant on government funding and philanthropic support to make our festival happen. Your donation allows us to continue supporting young artists, increase the number of writers we are able to program, and improve our capacity and resources to hold high quality events.

NYWF is a registered non-profit, so your donation (above $2) is also tax-deductible.
