Retell, Revisit, Reimagine: Writing Fresh Fairy Tales and Folklore for Older Readers 2018

About us

Explore ways to harness the enduring appeal of fairy tales in your own work.

Fairy tales have inspired writers since they were first recorded. In this workshop, you’ll explore the ways you can incorporate or reimagine them into your middle grade or young adult novel. Fairy tales demand the same level of writing as any other form of fiction, so the focus of the workshop will always be on craft.

You will:

  • Hear faculty sessions on craft.
  • Complete writing prompts.
  • Enjoy free writing time.
  • Participate in group discussions.
  • Work with a faculty mentor for feedback on your manuscript.

Please check back soon for more details on this workshop.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
