Ever get caught up reading (and writing) fan-fictions for your favorite shows and movies? Do you find it easier to write down what you are thinking or feeling instead of trying to express it off the cuff, face-to-face?

All materials will be provided by the Library (prompts, paper, pens, pencils). Sharing of new or old pieces is encouraged, but not required.
