All Levels | In this fast, furious, and fun class we will use classic fairy tales to devise our own contemporary stories. Prompts will borrow patterns and language to create usable templates for our ideas. You will come out with the start of least two stories, maybe more! We’ll use one well-known and a couple of not-so-well-known Brothers Grimm stories to get the ball rolling and look at stories by Aimee Bender, Ryka Aoki, and Stacey Levine for guidance.
