In `Fantasy Quest`, students embark on a journey to explore the most enduring literary genre of all time – fantasy fiction. This course is for lovers of the magic, myths, maps, monsters and marvels encountered by characters such as Morrigan Crow, Percy Jackson, Bilbo Baggins and Harry Potter.
Students have their imaginations stimulated, creativity unleashed and writing talent nurtured. Emulating Joseph Cambell’s model of the monomyth, they devise a hero or heroine prepared to undertake a quest in an otherworldly realm of their own creation.
Who will accompany the protagonist along the way? Who will prove to be their greatest nemesis? What terrible trials must the character endure in order for good to triumph over evil? Their success or failure is in the students’ hands.
This challenging course is designed for enthusiastic writers to further develop their literary and artistic skills..
