December 4, 2021

About the Event:
Join the Writers' League of Texas in this workshop with P.J. Hoover, It’s All Been Done Before: Finding Inspiration in Mythology, Fairy Tales, and Other Famous Stories”. Since the beginning of time, humans have shared stories to explain the world around them.
Whether your interest lies in mythology, be it Greek, Norse, or Chinese, folklore, such as Paul Bunyan and Robin Hood, or fairy tales, like Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel, taking these stories and creating something unique for today’s audience of readers can be clever, rewarding, and fun. And best of all, you will never run out of source material.
In this class, they’ll look not only at inspired ideas but at how to take those ideas and come up with something original. They’ll challenge the stereotypes. They’ll twist any fact that comes their way. And they will question everything. Bring ideas you already have or come looking to be inspired. And most of all, come prepared to look beyond the cliché and chisel out those unique stories that will stay with readers for years to come.
