Made With You in Mind
Writing fan fiction involves the creation of stories and books around already existing characters from a previously published work of literature or other art forms.
Here’s why we consider fan fiction the perfect vehicle for writing instruction:
In choosing an established world to write within, so much is already familiar to both the writer and (most likely) to the readers. This means young writers can concentrate on their storytelling and writing skills, since the characters and setting are given.

Navigating the Fan Fiction World
As part of the class, students will learn the basic methods for rating the appropriateness of fictional stories posted online. Stuff they should know as both readers and writers!
No stories falling under mature or restricted ratings may be published on the Brave Writer® site.
Since fan fiction mostly exists online, we include links to popular websites such as fanfiction.net, Wattpad, and others.
Publishing your work is NOT a requirement of this class, but we offer some publishing options if your student would like to do so. If they wish to publish their story online, they should do so at their own discretion and with parental permission.
Brave Writer® cannot assume responsibility to adequately monitor students on these platforms. It is up to parents to enforce whatever standards they choose for their family.
