What you'll learn in this fiction class:

Generate fear and tension in your work, while daring your reader to plunge forth into the darkness you create! Participants will read and discuss three selected stories in the first session, considering the elements of horror, attending to suspense, character, violence, and fear. In the following meetings, writers will workshop their newly written or in-progress scary stories, returning to and building on the understanding of the genre. With some luck and determination, participants will leave this workshop well on their way to a completed horror story.
