Fairytale Madness BlogFest!

AUGUST 13th – 17th


To enter, think of your favorite "well known" fairytale and ask "What If…!" Then, pick one of these four categories: (be sure to mention which category you're joining, during your blog post!)

Finally, write a scene(s) illustrating a new detail of the fabled fairy tale that changes our perspective.
To recap,

  • Is it a plot twist? (Cinderella gets knocked up by the Carriage Driver…)
  • An unknown romance that comes to light? (Snow White dumps the Prince for Grumpy…)
  • A tragic loss occurs? (The Three Little Pigs are too late to save their house…)
  • A little comic relief? (Hansel and Gretel win a trip on Euro Rail, sponsored in part by M&M’s…)

Whatever the change…It's limited only by your imagination – but please keep it PG-13

Other Rules:

  • Post your story during the week of August 13 to 17.
  • Flash Fiction – 300 WORD MAX. (You don't have to tell the whole story in three hundred words. Pick what works to illustrate your point.)
