A note on how to best spell fan fiction from Laura: 

I’ve noticed that the world has not yet settled on the spelling of this fairly new and increasingly popular genre of fiction writing. I’ve seen it as fanfiction, fan fiction, and fan-fiction. Looking back 5 year from now, it will be interesting to see where it ends up.

    Is there a word limit?

    Hi Laura,
    looking above, I see you were asked if there’s a place young or amateur writers can chat and share writings. I have an answer and a suggestion. Answer-First Class WriteStretch is a good place for young readers to share writings and give constructive criticism. Suggestion-YOU could start a place for writers of any age to share writing and help each other be better writers.

    • Laura Thomas

      Hi Lennox. Thank you for your suggestion. I may develop something like that in the future for our LTC Insider Plus+ Members.

    Is there a need of illustrations from us too?

    • Laura Thomas

      Hi Taha. Only if you enjoy doing illustrations. Otherwise Katie King, our artwork coordinator, will do a piece to go along with your story.

    How is the ppetry contest going?

    • It seems to be popular so far. Lots of entries.

      • Akshta

        That’s great! :)
        s it first time to be held? Or was it held before? Are you judging it right now or will you start judging it after the last deadline finishes.

        • Hi Akshta. Yes it’s our first time doing a poetry contest and judging does not start until the contest closes.

    When are the details coming?

    • Hi Akshta. The details are in the afterword of the novel. When it is available for sale, I will release the details.

      • Akshta

        Thanks Laura. Could you tell me some ways, peferably online, to meet other young authors of my age. I don’t find many in my social area who are as eager as me to opt for writing in thier career.

        • Hi Akshta. I don’t have an answer for you, but I can tell you that we are working on creating something like for young writers. :-)

          • Akshta

            Just you inspiration! :)

          • Akshta

            Thanks Laura. That would be great!

          • Hey Laura. I’d love to join in. Please let me know about it. When is it going to start? What all would it be about?

          • Hi Akshta. You can start any time. The book is now available.

          • Hey Laura. I’d love to join that too. Well, I was asking about communicating with other young writers.

          • Hi Akshta. I don’t have a forum set up for the Polly Fan Fiction Writing Challenge, but you will be able to read stories written by other fans and leave comments.
