How do you take age-old myths and make them relevant for today’s YA audience? Join award-winning author S.D. Gentill as she explores the techniques used to transform legends into new works. The prolific writer, whose fantasy adventure series (The Hero Trilogy) draws on Greek mythology, considers a range of myths and takes you through the process of retelling classic tales. What stories lurk on the periphery? How do you connect with modern readers? Gentill maps it all out.
