Gender transformed fairytales
6 deviations


:new: Wow 41 participants so far! There's lots of space, so it you want a story, come ask for a story! Also a few people have asked if they can submit a poem, I have no issue with this, so please if you want to poem instead you can!

:star:

It's been a long time since The Ancient Egyptian Deity challenge and the Poetic Spice-rack challenge and I thought it was time for another forum frolic because:

1. I enjoy them
2. It gets people writing. 

Did you know there are over 200 Grimm's Fairy tales? There's always lots of challenges that recreate fairy tales; modernise them, change endings and transform them into new and exciting versions. This is partly why they've stood the test of time. So lets keep this challenge simple and make our own exciting takes on them.

The basic rule for this challenge is to change the genders of all the characters in each of your story (can even be transgender, genderless etc if you want to). How you change or use the story is entirely up to you. You could retell the fairytale in your own way, or just take small elements from it to create your new tale.

How to join the challenge:


2. I will give you a Grimms' Fairy Tale from the list on Wikipedia.
3. You will then do a bit of research (at least read the tale, they're not that long and widely available to read online!) and write a story inspired by that tale as per above.
4. Post your results here!
5. I will collect them all, post a journal article and feature the results!
6. Spread the word! I'm posting this as a journal too to encourage lots of participation. Hopefully you'll look at other peoples pieces too to see how they took the challenge :)


Doing NaNoWriMo but want to play? These challenges usually last a few months before they dry up, so feel free to call "in" and save the writing till you've met your 50K

Beccalicious's Profile Picture
Beccalicious
Rebecca Showler
Artist | Literature
United Kingdom
I am a 29 year-old mother of one who has been writing since around 9 years old. I have a keen interest in scriptwriting, and write plays for commission for local schools and theatre groups. I have a BA in creative writing and theatre studies and currently studying for a Postgraduate certificate in Business Management. (day job!)

I love dA because you can see what others on here have to offer. I appreciate any artwork simply because I could never do half of the amazing work I find on here.

As a writer, my main focus is on Scriptwriting and Writing for Performance, most of what I produce doesn’t appear on dA as it is used professionally. I also enjoy writing prose, and poetry and have participated in several “wrimo”s over the past few years.

If you ever want to chat, come find me in #CRLiterature, or any of the chats on the dAmn network. I am also active in the literature forum and don't be afraid send me a note! I am always willing to help answer any questions you may have or say hello.
