Article in SLJ: When Harry Met Bella
The August issue of School Library Journal is now available online, so I get to announce that Liz B. and I wrote this month's cover story: When Harry Met Bella, which is about one of our favorite topics: Fanfiction. We wrote answers to some common questions about fanfiction, including "How legal is all of this, anyway?" and listed some of our favorite fanfiction sites. Let me tell you, it was NOT easy to get it all into 2,000 words. I think the first draft of the article was twice that long, and that was without the sidebars.
Once you've read the article, if you've got questions about fanfiction, I'm happy to answer them.
