Fractured Fairy Tales (3-week evening class)

Do you remember how funny the Fractured Fairy Tales from Rocky and Bullwinkle were? We’ll be writing our own "fairy tales with a twist" by changing well-known stories into comical ones through unexpected characterization, plot development, or contrary points-of -view. We’ll take a fun, playful approach to developing our tales. No writing experience necessary. This workshop is design to get your creative juices flowing and to have fun with writing with no pressure

Tuesdays July 9, 16, 23 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
