What can reimagining Asian lore and culture bring anew to the genre and the reader? These writers discuss the extent of taking liberties with familiar myths and legends, and how expanding on the fantastical elements might spur new conversations on tradition and modernity.

This programme includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
