Celebration Panel: So, You’re a Fanfic Writer That Wants to Go Pro (Claudia Gray)

Our host Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) recorded the amazing Star Wars Author Claudia Gray (@claudiagray) ran an amazing Panel, on Sat, Apr 13, 2019 at 4:00 PM on the Star Wars University Stage. This was only about 45 minutes of the panel as explained in the episode.

Description: You love writing fic for your favorite movies and TV shows, and think you might want to try your hand at writing original fiction professionally? The good news: There’s a lot you’ve probably learned from writing fanfic…though the lessons may not be the ones you think. But there’s also a whole lot more to the transition than getting paid. Author Claudia Gray, who started in fanfic herself, will talk about what she did, and didn’t, learn from that process—and help aspiring authors figure out what they will, and won’t, have to change for their dreams to become a reality.

Claudia Gray’s work includes Lost Stars, Bloodline, Leia Princess of Alderaan, and a new release Master and Apprentice is out NOW.

Episode I: The Fandom Menace

Synopsis:

Ally finds out the hard way that not all Star Wars are created equal, and not all Star Wars fans value Star Wars equally. A first time viewing of Fanboys has disastrous results. But it turns out that Star Wars, a group of friends, and a wild plan can make everything better.
