Fairy-tale and myth retellings, with Matilda Leyser

11

Hi everyone

I’m delighted to offer you a new episode of The Art of Enchantment podcast, in which I talk about fairy-tale and myth retellings (and running away to join the circus, and mothers who create, and so much more) with Matilda Leyser, author of No Season But the Summer – a reimagining of the myth of Demeter and Persephone which I recommended here a few week ago.

Episodes of this podcast are available exclusively here on Substack, and they’re usually available to paid subscribers only. To give you a flavour, though, I’m making this one available to everyone – with a reminder that if you’d like to upgrade to receive future podcasts as well as all the other benefits of being a paid subscriber, I’m offering 20% of paid subscriptions till the end of July, 2023.

I hope you enjoy our conversation. And do please tell us about your favourite fairy-tale or myth retellings in the comments section.
