Angelique Jurd is a former print journalist and editor, with experience in newspaper, magazine and digital formats. In 2014 she left her job to pursue a double major BA in Media Studies and English, and graduated in 2017.
During this time, Angelique discovered a passion for fan produced media and has become an outspoken advocate for the recognition of fan fiction as a legitimate genre of literature. She is one of two volunteer shadow Chair of Communications for The Organization for Transformative Works (OTW) - home of Archive of Our Own (AO3) and Transformative Works and Cultures (TWC).
A noncommercial and nonprofit central hosting site for transformative fan produced media such as fan-fiction, fan-art, fan videos and pod-fic Ao3 was created and is run by fans from a wide variety of fandoms around the world, while TWC is a peer-reviewed academic journal, founded in 2008,that seeks to promote scholarship on fan-works and practices. Both benefit from a wide network of volunteers dedicated to protecting fan produced media as well as the legal rights of its creators without in any way trying to undermine those rights and privileges of source creators.
Angelique is currently preparing a Master of Arts thesis on the ways in which fan-produced media disrupts, informs, and influences the original text and creators of the television show Supernatural.
Alongside her academic and freelance non-fiction work, Angelique is a working independent author of MM Romance. Her published novels can be found on Amazon.
