Fairy Tales Reimagined at Bradford Lit Fest

Isn’t it about time that “happily ever after” got a forward-thinking makeover?

Now that we have no use for gender stereotypes involving helpless maidens and bland, heroic princes, fairy tales have progressed to take on more empowering and more inclusive storylines.

In her new collection, Fierce Fairytales: & Other Stories to Stir Your Soul, Nikita Gill rejuvenates tired tropes with princesses who save themselves and modern takes on well-known villains.

Gill will be in conversation with Kirsty Logan, whose forthcoming book of feminist, literary horror stories centres on fears of domesticity, childbearing, and violence, as well as Jen Campbell, author and host of the popular YouTube series, Fairy Tales with Jen.
