Mythcreants Invasion

September 2017

As almighty Summer flexes its full might for the last time this year, we at Mythcreants have our mind on messages. This month we focused on what stories say to their audience, intentionally or otherwise. We consider a story’s position on queer rights, how stories can undermine their own message, and how to use historical inspiration for good. No story exists in a vacuum, and storytellers should always consider how their words will be received.
