Ancient Tales Newly Told

BY JASON M. RUBIN
@ VOL 1 ON SEP 21, 2018

Writing a novel based on an existing text may seem like a shortcut, but the road to noveldom can still be filled with potholes and speed bumps. Jason has written two novels—one based on a 17th-century English folk ballad and one based on a Biblical story. In order to make them feel both compelling and authentic to modern audiences, he had to do extensive research, ask and answer many questions, and invent new characters and subplots to flesh out these ancient tales to book-length form. His presentation, Ancient Tales Newly Told, will take the audience inside his process of breathing fresh life into old stories.
