Fairy tales provide the perfect model for good storytelling. In this class, we’ll look at story structure through the lens of fairy tales, then use those tales as a jumping-off point for your own fictional versions. These are known as Fractured Fairy Tales. During this six-week course, students will write at least one story. All levels of writers welcome.

The fee for the 6-week class is $140. Class size is limited to 6 students.
