Topic for the Semester

I have decided on my topic for this semester. I will be focusing on online fanworks, which can be a diverse tool to promote creativity in any individual. Fanworks are works created by fans based on an existing media such as books, movies, TV shows, video games, comics, and etcetera. Fanworks can be further categorised as fanfictions (writings), fanarts (artworks), fanvids (videos), fanmix (music), fansites (websites), and cosplay (costume designing and showcasing).

I grew up with fanworks, having stumbled upon them online during my anime fangirl days, and those have affected me in many ways. Not only have they helped me become a better writer, but I discovered a world online where I meet other fans who like what I like, and we formed our own community as we created fanworks and gave feedbacks and support to one another.
