Fairy Tales as Inspiration

Intermediate / Advanced | Fairy tales and folk tales are among the oldest story forms in the world and also the most versatile. In this class, we’ll read tales from the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and Russian and African folk traditions, as well as contemporary writers such as Angela Carter and Michael Cunningham, and use these to generate story ideas. Students will produce and discuss 1-2 stories. We’ll also do in-class exercises from suggested prompts.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
