Hans Christian Andersen

by / Sunday, 25 October 2015 / Published in Writing for Children and Young Adults

Since my books are inspired by and borrow from characters who were created by or whose stories were collected by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen, I was excited to see this free MOOC (massive open online course) run by the University of Southern Denmark: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/hans-christian-andersens-fairy-tales #FLFairyTales

I’ve just completed week one which covered the man behind the writer and an introduction to his literary work. If you’re interested in reading his stories, this website has “the most comprehensive edition of Andersen’s fairy tales in English (American) on the internet” http://andersen.sdu.dk/vaerk/hersholt/index_e.html

I had no idea there were so many! Looking forward to week 2 already :)
