Why Gothic Fairy Tales?

Gothic fits 2020. 

Not because it’s full of horrors (though there is that in common), but because, deep down, the gothic is about transgression. It’s about subverting power. It’s about shadows - but it asks us to think about why there are shadows, how to find beauty in them, and, when necessary, how to dispel them. 

The gothic is about grappling with the darkness and facing down monsters.

Just like fairy tales.

In this course, you’ll take a deep dive into the gothic mode and into fairy tales. You’ll learn what they are, how they overlap, and how their dread glamour and magic feed each other. And you’ll learn how they can ignite your own creative process.

The modules include:

We will also be using the fairy tale anthology Beyond the Woods: Fairy Tales Retold edited by Paula Guran, so if you don't already have a copy, check your local library or find a copy online today (used copies can be found for around $5).
