Join author Victoria Koops for a fun evening exploring fanfiction! Learn her process and embrace the weird in your creations. Calling shippers, AU writers, and fanfic enthusiasts!

Part of the Writes of Spring programming series.

This is an in-person program. Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell. 

Calling all shippers, AU writers, and fanfic enthusiasts! Join Victoria Koops, author of Who We Are In Real Life (2024), for an evening exploring the wonderful (and often weird) world of fanfiction. In this celebration of fandom, Victoria will share how she uses fanfiction in her writing process and challenge attendees to get strange with their writing!

Presenter Information: Vitoria Koops never stopped playing make-believe and often writes while wearing a tiara. Her stories are full of epic adventure and swoony romance and navigate social issues through the power of fandom and geek culture. Her debut novel, WHO WE ARE IN REAL LIFE, will be released on February 6, 2024, from Groundwood Books.

As a practicing counsellor, Victoria writes, plays, and lives with her family in Treaty 4 Territory. Besides writing, Victoria loves to sing off-key, tease her sisters, and fool herself into believing that maybe, just maybe, she’ll choose a different romance the next time she sits down to play Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Victoria is a member in good standing of the Estevan Writer’s Group, the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, and the Writers’ Union of Canada. In the summers of 2016 and 2021, she attended the Sage Hill Writing Experience and completed a mentorship with Canadian author Merilyn Simonds in 2020. So far, this writing thing has been a wild adventure, and she’s just getting started!
