YWW Portland: Fun With Folklore with Kate Ristau
October 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Fun With Folklore
Folklore is the stories, art, music, and traditions that we share with our friends and inherit from our families. As writers, it can help us to think about why stories last — what makes them resonate across time and space? Join me to talk about how you can use folklore to launch into your own story.
