Café Fanfic is a discussion topic centered around fan-fiction. Authors are encouraged to contribute to the café's monthly discussion, which are designed to stimulate ideas and encourage engagement between members of the SWF fan-fiction writing community in a criticism-free zone.
Participants in Café Fanfic are also welcome to submit ideas for the next month's topic of discussion.
Previous topics can be found in the archive list at the bottom of the page.
There are three basic premises for Café Fanfic
- Please restrict this to stuff from your fan-fiction (written or possibly just conceptualized).
- You can suggest and make observations, but no condemning other people's work
- "I don't know" is a perfectly acceptable answer.
- December's topic: If your character was able to go on a vacation or travel for leisure, where would they go? How would they do it? How likely are they to have the opportunity to do so?
