We may not see them day to day, but stories tell us that mythical creatures can be found in all sorts of places: faeries in the trees, centaurs in the forests and Yetis or sasquatches in remote mountain areas. Students in this creative writing and publishing workshop will create their own fantastic beasts and compile the second edition of ECP’s Guide to Mythical Hybrids. To write an informative and comprehensive guide, students will consider all sorts of puzzling questions and topics about their mythical species, from its friends and foes, diet, sleeping habits and more!
