Happily Ever After: Weekend workshop This inspiring workshop focuses on the transformational power of fairy tales. We’ll cast our real-life problems in metaphorical terms (fairy tale terms!), then use the narrative structure and conventions of fairy tales to solve those problems in effective, creative ways. By the end of the weekend you will have written your own fairy tale, gained a valuable problem-solving skill, and maybe even slain a personal dragon or two.
