Fantasy Fiction and Found Images

Through mixing adventure fiction and haunting vintage photography, Ransom Riggs fantasy fiction is taking over the world! In this workshop we will explore the ways this genre can be a surprisingly useful device in the classroom by looking at how Riggs uses found photos and random snapshots to write fantasy adventures. Likewise, we too will closely observe photographs that were rescued from the dustbin to create legendary tales from our own lives. The people in these photos are strangers to us and indeed peculiar, but they will become the inspiration for interesting stories as we exaggerate them to the point of fantasy fiction.
