Fanfiction and Original Work: A Virtual Panel on Craft

It's increasingly common for authors to publicly talk about their relationship with fan work - how they got their start writing Star Trek fanfic, or work through writer's block with original work by playing with someone else's world, or experiment with form in a low-stakes setting. How can writing fanfic enrich, inform, complicate one's original work, and vice versa? Which writerly itches can each practice scratch? In what ways does each approach to writing challenge or relax the writer (and, indeed, the reader)?
