What draws us to old stories, and what can we bring to them that’s new? Participants will discuss and examine a range of fairytales and work on using the stories from our childhood to inspire work for a range of audiences. This workshop will mainly focus on prose (specifically short fiction), but poetry and writing for theatre will also be touched on.
