Good morning everyone!
We hope you all had a chance to check out everyone’s posts from the September blog tour, but if you haven’t that’s alright. While our October blog tour has already begun, we have plenty of free days to use for catching up on our reading. You can easily find all the links to the stops in our September roundup post or by following us on the blog as we keep sharing our member posts
Like our last few monthly themes, the one for October was also a request! Have a topic you’d like for us to discuss? Let us know!
October “Fantasy” (requested by Aria)
In the month of October, we will be exploring the world of fantasy in pop culture. The genre of fantasy focuses on telling stories about our external and internal environments. There are many ways we can interpret the word, fantasy. For example, we can talk about how a fantastical place could glorify what reality should be or the dangers of ideal expectations. Fantasy could also be seen as taking a “wild journey” or a “hallcuination” and how that can affect our psyche and well-being. Fantasy can also focus on our personal dreams and expectations and how those expectations do not align with our reality. Overall, our posts will reflect on how we view the fantasy genre and what we can learn about these pop culture mediums.
