This year, I’ll be on a panel organized by Robin Brenner (No Flying, No Tights); it’s about YA Literature and Fan-Created Work. From the YALSA YA Lit Symposium website: “Fan created works, from fan fiction to fan art, are an increasingly visible and a richly rewarding way for fans to interact with their favorite stories. At the same time, fan works raises sticky questions about copyright and the meaning of transformative work for literature and authorship. Join a panel of authors, editors, librarians, and fans to explore the impact of participatory fan culture has had and will continue to have on teen literature. Presenters: Robin Brenner and Elizabeth Burns.”
I hope to see you there!
