Bedtime Stories for the End of the World is produced in partnership with the ground-breaking poetry podcast of the same name. The five featured poets draw on their own experience, adding a new dimension to an existing tale. 'Bedtime Stories for the End of the World' is a spoken word and poetry podcast about the power of myth and the politics of storytelling. The podcast asks some of the UK's top poets to re-imagine their favourite myths, fairy tales and legends - the stories they want to keep and protect for the future. It also involves an annual live event, creating a tangible and accessible experience for existing and new audiences. Bonnier Books UK and the podcast's creative team are working together to produce modern re-imaginings of traditional fairy stories aimed at children 12+.
Reimagined tales include East of the Sun West of the Moon, Bluebeard, Philoctetes and the Trinidadian folklore figure 'douen'.
