For those of you who live close enough to be interested in this, Ross A. Laird is introducing a new class at Kwantlen University College. Mythological Narratives is designed to explore how most or all stories and writings today have deep roots in ancient mythology. Nothing new under the sun. It's all been written before. Not entirely. All creative process evolves from something. Stories and writing are no different.
Laird is a savvy teacher and an accomplished writer who seems to have information about almost any subject. What is of particular merit is his ability to dissect a sentence, fling away the unnecessary words and grammar, and create clean, meaningful prose. He understands the writing process, the necessity for creative thought and freedom. All this makes for an engaging and interesting class environment.
