"FanStory sponsored a contest to write a novel in two months. I completed it February 29 of this year.

Last night I signed a contract with a publisher.

Thanks so much to the people who read "Melinda Heads West" and helped me by reviewing and sending tips my way. I'm over the moon! I've said this before, I'm saying it again.... I LOVE FANSTORY! Thanks for all you do!"

Robyn Corum

"I heartily nominate FanStory as the most helpful website I have ever come across that truly delivers what it promises. Not only is it a forum in which your poetry, stories and essays are reviewed by other aspiring writers (I had 110 reviews of my latest poem!), but I've been able to develop my critical skills by reviewing other members' works, as well. There are contests galore to enter, daily, with generous payouts ... and ... well, I see no reason to go anywhere else!"

Jay Squires

"Without FanStory I simply would not be a writer at all. The feedback and friendships I have made here have changed my entire life.

Honest feedback helped prepare me for the real world. The contests have also helped me, and continue to help me. Writing to a topic, and writing to a deadline, is key. There isn't a more valuable skill than to sit down and write about a subject by a specific date. That's the real world."

Jen Horton, columnist.

Writing Classes

Writing Short Nonfiction
Many writers turn to more "creative" genres when they begin writing, such as poetry, short stories, and the novel. However, it is nonfiction, such as articles, feature stories, and interviews, that will sell while that completed novel languishes unread on the writer's desktop. In addition, nonfiction writers don't need agent representation while still using much of the same writing skills and creativity as a fiction writer.
Class Begins: In 2 Days

Haiku and Senryu

We will define and clarify current thinking around the two forms (English-Language and Japanese), and clear up misunderstandings and misconceptions, Students will write and analyze examples of haiku and senryu.

You can sign up as an individual for a directed study, or you can find a couple of friends to sign up with you as a study group.

What I don't know I will research.
Class Begins: September 8th
