Once upon a time...

"Once upon a time..." - the start of every good fairy tale.

Last year to mark the 200th anniversary of Brothers Grimm’s book of fairy tales, the Goethe-Institut New Zealand ran a competition to write a Grimm fairytale for modern Aotearoa New Zealand. It's a lot harder than you might think to get the right mix of magic, mystery and a touch of nastiness.

Over 300 entries were submitted and they're now being published on the Once upon a time blog where you can vote for your favourites.

And if you want to have a look at mine (The four brothers and the ungrateful princess)... it's just gone up.
