Wednesdays With Will #9 - Story Inspiration
Some people say that Shakespeare took ideas from other authors and rewrote them as his plays, and they're not entirely wrong!
Shakespeare's plays are inspired by classic stories, both real and made-up, from his time and before. He drew inspiration from the history and stories of the Greeks and Romans, from the English people that came before him and even from people who lived in places like Italy and Spain while he lived! He always put his own twist on them, though.
Want to get a feeling of what this is like? Adapt your own well-known story: The Three Little Pigs! Brush up on this classic fable, then make your own version. What changes? What stays the same? Send us the text or a video of it so we can know! As always, feel free to send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
