Tales as Old as Time:
Modernizing Fairy Tales, Myths and Legends
Prometheus stealing fire from the gods. Pandora opening a box. Atlantis. Paradise lost. Vampires. Some myths have stood the test of time, and the reason is simple —
they resonated with their cultures, and they resonate with us. As writers, we can learn so much from these tales that are as old as time (yes, just like Beauty and the Beast). On October 5th, join author and folklorist Kate Ristau at The Washington County Writers Forum as she explores what we can take away from the myths that persist and the characters that keep fighting, stealing, and tricking their way into immortality.
