A masterclass in all things monstrous and mythical

Are you an aspiring fantasy or folktale writer? Would you like to learn how to adapt and retell old myths and legends in your own writing? Join us for this two-day weekend intensive course on the art of mythical creative writing. Over these two days, you will explore ancient and medieval myths and legends and discover how writers have adapted them over the years to tell new stories to readers and audiences today. Inspired by and including a guided curator tour of our exhibition Alexander the Great: The Making of a Myth, you will undertake a variety of writing and workshopping exercises to practice and hone your creative writing skills.

This course will run across the following dates:

  • Saturday 11 February, 10.30 – 17.00
  • Sunday 12 February, 10.30 – 17.00

This course is led by British Library exhibition curator, Giulia Gilmore and author and art historian Amy Jeffs.
