Fairy Tales as Inspiration

Intermediate / Advanced | Fairy tales and folk tales are among the oldest story forms in the world and also the most versatile. In this class, we’ll read tales from the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and Russian and African folk traditions, as well as contemporary writers such as Angela Carter and Michael Cunningham, and use these to generate story ideas. Students will produce and discuss 1-2 stories. We’ll also do in-class exercises from suggested prompts.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
