Fanfiction as a Form of Literature and Proposals for its Improvement

Fanfiction as a Form of Literature and Proposals for its Improvement

Published by Paula Molina
Fanfiction, which is fiction written by and for fans, has been growing in popularity throughout the years. It is the medium that most adolescents choose in reading. Fanfiction, for its history and growing popularity, should be considered as a form of literature in this day and age but it should, however, change some of its guidelines with regards to whomever can read and access fanfiction sites as well as improve its application requirements for authors and betas. This research attempts to review fanfiction’s history and its effects on the members of its community such as it being a way for teenagers can make friends. The research also explains how fanfiction is not a form of stealing, as so many people think that it is, but is an expression of love by fans of the original works. It also evaluates the meaning of ‘literature’ which is a production of writing as a defence for the approval of fanfiction as a part of literature. Through fanfiction, authors develop and if they are lucky enough, they can turn into published authors as Cassandra Clare did. The research states points that fanfiction must improve on like stricter guidelines with regards to the members that sites accept as well as a better screening process of both its authors and its betas in order to better itself and serve its community to its fullest potential.
