    Gail Pallotta,Vanessa Riley,June Foster, and Connie Almony-The Fairy Tale Series

    in Books

    The Fairy Tale Series - from Gail Pallotta


    Mildred Colvin’s son, Jonathan, suggested his mother and each of her critique partners write a fairy tale and self-publish them.


    We all agreed, saying we’d be there for each other if any of us got stuck during the process.


    Mildred, who’s self-published over twenty books, spearheaded the effort. Vanessa Riley, who’s a talented designer as well as writer, volunteered to create a cover for each story.   


    We’re a laid-back group, so no one set rules about which fairy tales we chose or what direction we took with the retelling. We wanted and needed to make them consistent though.


    First we discussed length and decided on novellas. Considering several options on how to tie them all together, we chose the location. June Foster had already started her story in a town called Fairwilde. We all agreed to put our characters there, but instead of having them in a particular town and state, we created Fairwilde Kingdom. I think this was important because it gave us a way to use more than one setting for our stories. Vanessa suggested the same size for the covers along with a title, sub-title and series name. We call each book A Fairwilde Reflection Novella.


    We started writing and critiquing immediately. Working in our fantasy worlds for a year brought us lots of joy. We hope the novellas will do the same for our readers.


    First out was At the Edge of a Dark Forest, a retelling of Beauty and the Beast by Connie Almony; next, Red and the Wolf, a version of Little Red Riding Hood by June Foster; third, Mirror on the Fall, an adaptation of Snow White by Mildred Colvin; fourth, Swept Away, a twist on Cinderella by Vanessa Riley and lastly Mountain of Love and Danger.

    Archetypes, Fairy Tales & Divine Feminine w/Cathy Pagano

    in Spirituality

    Fairy tales are the simplest experesion of archetypal patterns.  Junians love to work with fairy tales and myths to better understand our personal dream stories, which often reflect these archetypal themes.  While it seem as if many of our inherited fairy tales have a patriarchal bent, it is also true that these fairy tales show us how to deal with this overbearing patriarchal attitude.  Archetypal paterns self-correct, and so instead of Sleeping Beauty waiting for her prince to save her, these tales expressed what the Feminine Principle needs to learn to "do" (the masculine energy) to deal with the situation.  The heroines of these tales were, in fact, learning to save themselves.  That's the message we're seeing today in movies such as Maleficent and Frozen andon TV in Once Upon a Time.  Cathy will also share some stories about her favorite heras/heroines:  Scheherazade, Dame Ragnell and Allerleirauh.


    We'll discuss what are archetypes, why it is important to understand symbolic language, why a feminist approach to fairy tales is more limiting than a symbolic one and much more.  Tune in!
