This thesis examines the relationship between fanfiction and the publishing industry, and the changes that occur when the former enters the latter. By focusing on five authors with different backgrounds in the writing of fanfiction, the study maps literary values and attitudes regarding fanfiction in a context of publishing studies. The thesis uses the digital publishing communications circuit developed by Padmini Ray Murray and Claire Squires to map out the publishing industry of today, to discern how fanfiction alters that circuit and theorizes what a similar communications model solely focused on fanfiction would look like. Anne Jamison’s research on fanfiction is used to further examine the phenomena in regards to publishing. The study finds that the position of fanfiction is changing to a more positive one, and that published fanfiction authors are leading that change. Fanfiction disrupts the power structures that rule the literary market and the publishing business, and can therefore change the work process of professional publishing and how that process is valued.
