Of Superheroes and Greek Gods

Of myths, fables and modern dystopian folklore!

It’s always refreshing to teach a fresh batch of kids who are as enthusiastic as their favourite fantasy characters. This might be my 10th fantasy workshop this year but I learn so much from every new class. This time we introduced Magic Realismo, Dystopian Fiction, Young Adult Fantasy and World Mythology focussing primarily on Greek, Norse and Celtic fables. Besides the usual topics like World Creation, Character roundup and Superhero Tops we engaged the students with fun trivia games that talked about modern and classical fantasy. Students also got to watch fantasy short films to fully comprehend ‘The Heros Journey’. Moving to the next level for sure.
