Fiction Workshop: Fairy Tales as Inspiration [Cara Diaconoff]
Intermediate. For many of us, fairy tales were the first stories we ever read. What happens if we go back to them for grown-up artistic inspiration? In this class, we’ll read tales from the Grimms, Hans Christian Andersen, and African folk traditions, as well as contemporary writers such as Angela Carter and Michael Cunningham, and use these to generate story ideas. Depending on class size, students will produce and discuss one-two stories. We’ll also do in-class exercises from suggested prompts.
