ABSTRACT

In this interactive workshop, we want to familiarise you with fanfiction and interactive fiction (IF). At the end of our session, you will be able to find good examples of these new forms of fiction. You will also be able to identify their value in ELT. And you will be able to tell your students how they can have their writings published on the fanfiction and IF websites. This session will be practical and mainly hands-on.

NOTE: THE PRESENTERS ASK THAT YOU BRING A LAPTOP TO THE SESSION. FREE WIFI WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE VENUE.
