Did you ever read fairy tales when you were growing up? Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, orThe Frog Prince for example?
Do you ever wonder what those stories would be like if the protagonist of the story didn’t receive help from a magical fairy godmother, encounter a witch, or fly off to NeverNeverland?
The contest for this month: Take the Fairy out of the Tale. We want you to take your favorite fairytale and write a skeptical spin to it. We want to know what would happen if Cinderella didn’t have a fairy Godmother to help to her the ball!
You can post your stories in the comments. There is no limit to the length. At the end of the month, Elyse and I will set up a poll and have the reader’s vote on the winner.
The lovely prize for this contest is a free Skepchick Calendar! That’s right, if you win, you’ll get the newest calendar, hot off the press! You’ll be able to oogle your fav Skepchicks and Skepdudes all year ’round. That truly is a gift that keeps on giving.
Good luck! Elyse and I are looking forward to reading the entries!
