The Asian American Writer’s Workshop presents a new program for teens in or near New York City called UnFairy Tales: The Myths in Myths:
In your version of Cinderella, is Cinderella more Jenny from the Block than forlorn maiden servant? Or how about the Frog Prince, is he really just your gamer best friend who can't seem to hit off with any of the girls he meets? In UnFairy Tales: The Myths in Myths you will write down such alternatives to traditional notions of fairy tales and myths and explore why there is a need for revision. Open to all youth ages 13-19, of all ethnicities, races and backgrounds. Saturdays, October 20 - December 1, 2-6 pm. Closing event, Saturday, December 8, 7 pm. $50 artist fee paid to participants. Program directed by Nina Sharma.Click here for details and to download an application. Submission deadline is Thursday, October 11, 2007.
