Diaspora Dialogues is inviting emerging Canadian writers to apply to the organization’s Mentoring Program, a 6-month “writer’s residency” which helps writers hone their craft and learn about the manuscript submission process.
The committee will pair each writer with a professional mentor to work on the writer’s finished or work-in-progress book-length manuscript. The mentoring sessions will be conducted via email or post correspondence.
Finally, a mainstream media article that presents the human side of fandom, and talks about why it’s important to have alternative forms of media.
I fangirl this woman so hard right now.
"Fan fiction, fan art, the way female fans celebrate what they love: this stuff isn’t a secret anymore – and it shouldn’t be a punch line anymore, either. It’s a big messy world full of amateur writing and unedited work, but it’s also got of some of the best fiction I’ve ever read, published or otherwise. You don’t have to participate in it to afford it even a modicum of respect. I’ll be the first to volunteer if you ever want to learn. But if you’re not interested in that, politely decline to answer. It’s easy to blame the celebrity, dragged into answering these questions. But really, the fault lies with the media. Please, please, please journalists: stop asking celebrities about fan fiction. Unless you’re having an in-depth conversation about fictional constructions of the actors’ personae (like the very one you’ll be presenting in your piece?), it serves no purpose. Non-fans likely don’t get it; fans think you look like a bully – because you are.”
