Flipping the Fairytale Script: Make Old Stories New to You

Whether you are stuck in your writing practice or only beginning to dabble, making an old story unfamiliar and new is a playful way to learn about storytelling and invigorate your creative process. In this class, you’ll take a fairytale of your choice and re-tell it from the perspective of a secondary character or a completely new one. This age-old activity has resulted in famous works such as Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz, Never Never, and A Wolf at The Door. During the two-hour workshop, Sea will offer tips and activities to help you develop your character, establish the story’s point of view, and imagine its new conflict and plot. All you’ll need is yourself, paper and pen. Feel free to have a fairytale in mind.

Sea Stachura’s brain is a toolbox for all kinds of storytelling, and she loves sharing these tools. She has over 15 years of experience writing print and radio journalism. Her work has appeared on NPR, Marketplace and locally on GPB. For five years, she taught multimedia storytelling and podcasting at Augusta University. Currently, she’s completing her MFA in fiction at the renowned MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.
