Fracturing Fairytales By Laura Packer
From Disney to comics to movies and more, fairytales are everywhere. They shape our hopes and dreams, and offer a path through the dark woods.
This immersive, interactive workshop will deepen your understanding of these ancient tales and guide you to either take an existing story then break it open and recraft it for your own needs, or create a brand new fairy tale that feels like it's been around for generations.
Expect to write, tell, discuss, and dive deep into fairy tales in a supportive environment. This workshop is appropriate for high school students and adults. It is not recommended for younger people because of possible content of some of the stories. No stories will be censored though content warnings are required.
