Online Class – The Woods: Writing From Fairy Tales with Syr Beker

January 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$50 – $250

This is a five week all-genres course exploring writing from fairy tales. We will develop a practice and process of writing from fairy tales, for inspiration, delight, and liberation. We will define fairy tales broadly to encompass the stories we tell, and read writers who have explored fairy tales, including Helen Oyeyemi, Jasmine Sawers, Daniel Lavery, and Carmen Maria Machado. We will come out of this with: 1) a method of writing from fairy tales, 2) a mid-sized draft (short story, long poem, poetry cycle, chapter, game outline); 3) many entry points to new worlds.

Fairy tales belong to all of us, and so this course is suitable for anyone interested in generative writing and finding ideas, whether you are a novelist working on a novel, a poet, a short story writer, a non-fiction writer, a game writer, a visual artist, or just ready to explore.
