Interested in writing retellings? Cat Rambo and I are teaching a class together: retellings and re-taleings.
Authors constantly draw on the stories that have preceded them, particularly folklore, mythology, and fables. What are the best methods for approaching such material and what are the possible pitfall? How does one achieve originality when working with such familiar stories? Lecture, in-class exercise, and discussion will build your proficiency when working with such stories.
Cat Rambo has been a friend of mine since 2005 when she and I, along with many other fabulous people, went to Clarion West together. She’s a Nebula nominated author with an established short story career whose first novel just came out. She’s also the current president of SFWA.
The class is at 9:30 am pacific time on November 8, taught online. It’s $99, 10% of for former students.
