Folk and fairy tale retellings are satisfying because they offer a fresh take on stories we know well. But just how does one retell a story that is so familiar? What tactics and techniques do writers employ for making archaic stories new? In this seminar, we’ll first discuss the structures, motifs, and themes that define these genres and then consider how framing our stories around familiar tropes might cast new and powerful light on contemporary stories. Open to any writer of fiction, nonfiction, or hybrid prose.
