Video Workshop on Fairytale Comics

I talk about the narrative structure of fairy tales & fables, then walk you through a short guided exercise, making your own original short fairy tale comic.

I haven’t watched this yet, but I fully intend to. For me personally, the appeal of fairy tales is:

– witches
– anthropophagy
– interspecies romance

Probably my least favorite genre of contemporary fantasy writing is “classic fairy tales re-envisioned with a feminist/queer slant.” No shade, but it’s not for me. What I do like are short stories that follow a fairy tale structure, by which I mean someone gets eaten at the end. Melanie Gillman is very good at this, and I’m looking forward to hearing their thoughts.
