What can we learn from fairy tales as fiction writers? Whether it be strange characters, random plots, or startling twists, fairy tales burn interesting and memorable paths into our psyches. How do we weave these curious societal impressions into our current stories of today and make them work? Join renowned author and illustrator, Ursula Vernon (T. Kingfisher), as she discusses ways to spin some of the more absurd elements of fairy tales into workable modern narratives. Bring your most bridegrooms and tortoise brides for this three-hour workshop designed to get your creative juices flowing!
*Please note that, while this class is free to register, a limited number of seats are available. You must register for this class in order to attend.
