For imparting morals through storytelling, a literary genre has proven itself effective since ancient times: the good old fable. These succinct, fantastic, and memorable stories shape our moral tradition as they're told and passed on in different mediums. And while it's too late for us to become part of ancient folk literature, we can still take advantage of fables to impart practical truths that will uplift others.
How to Write Fables is a course as quick and practical as the genre. You'll be guided through a speedy, methodical approach in transforming a moral lesson into a simple yet entertaining story form. You'll also see a few examples of how you could publish your own fables.
This course requires no prior writing training or experience—just an eagerness to teach through story.
