Class Description:

Retellings - graphicAuthors constantly draw on the stories that have preceded them–particularly folklore, mythology, and fables, but also beloved literature and media. How do you keep your work original and interesting when you’re playing with familiar stories?





More information:

I wrote a short essay about mash-ups and retellings, “Mash It Up,” that comes out of the class.
