Fan writing is not necessarily amateurish writing nor is it second-rate pro writing. "Fan writing" is also not a synonym for fan fiction -- nearly all fan writing is non-fiction and is more often in the form of an essay than anything else. It can be a personal essay, a trip report, an article on a topic, or even a review.
Great fan writers have included people like Bob Tucker, Ted White, Harry Warner, Jr., Richard E. Geis, Terry Carr, Bob Shaw, Susan Wood, Mike Glyer, Dave LangfordFrederik Pohl, Claire Brialey, and Walt Willis.
