Attic Institute: WINTER Online: Fairytales, Myth, and Dystopia: A Fiction Workshop w Elinam Agbo | Feb 16 – Mar 16

Snow White. The Round Table. Persephone and Hades. From hybrid prose to web comics and blockbusters, fairy tales and legends are constantly retold across mediums. Why do we continue to relate? How do they help us find meaning in uncertain times? What can we borrow from these forms to examine the past and future in light of climate change, migration, and capitalism? In this course, we will study writers like Helen Oyeyemi, Carmen Maria Machado, Sabrina Orah Mark, and Joy Williams. Then we will begin our own stories, inspired by existing lore. If you are drawn to cross-cultural myths, obscure tales, or the idea of Rapunzel on Mars, this is the class for you. Register for this workshop NOTE: To protect everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic,…

This theme is open to your interpretation! Issue #3 submission deadline : January 11, 2021 Issue #3 release : February 2021 What kind of work are we looking for? We want to read your truest weirds.
