Retelling Representation: Inclusive Fairy Tales

eggplantlit:

The use of fairy tales demonstrates their inherent flexibility and our individual power to (literally) rewrite the problematic literature of our culture, as it twists stories so ingrained in Western culture, stories that we wrongly assume can only include certain types of people.

Link to a blog post about representation in fairy tales.  The author approached me (Raechel) last month about the Spellbound & Spindles anthologies and I thought she just wanted a quote.  I was really surprised as to how much time she spent on Eggplant and the project.  

The whole article is worth reading.  It’s not overly long.  

The deadline for submissions is April 30 (my mom’s birthday!*).  Guidelines are here: http://eggplantproductions.com/general-guidelines/guidelines-for-spellbound-spindles/

*That fact isn’t relevant to the project, just thought I’d give my mom a shoutout.

Spellbound and Spindles are still open for submissions, you can read all about the project here!

Day 99: Jack and the beanstalk in my own minimalistic interpretation. Definitely one of my favorite tales I heard as a kid. I just loved the idea of another world above the clouds.

Tomorrow is the last day of my 100-days-drawing spree. It’s been fun. But sometimes it has felt like a big obstacle in my way. However I’ve learned much more than I expected.

Until the 100th day.
