Fairytales in the Margins

  • Matraville Sports High Anzac Parade Chifley NSW 2606 Australia (map)

Grade 8 students at Matraville Sports High will use marginalia to explore the characters, structure and purpose of fairytales. The marginalia will then form the basis for a rewriting of the fairytale. 

Imagine if your characters escaped from the page they were written on. How would they see the world? What would they say to each other? We’ll start with a conversation between characters written in the margins of a fairytale and turn those ideas into a modern version of the fairytale. 

This is a closed schools workshop.
