WRITING FEAR: WRITING AND READING HORROR FOR PERMISSION, CRAFT, AND SUBVERSION
Writing Fear is a Five Week Adventure using horror and dark fantasy for inspiration, craft, and subversion.
We will write, read, and discuss horror as a queer/feminist/subversive medium, and as a launching point to discuss craft: how do we build tension? how do we write the frightening image? how do we explore beauty and its opposite? how to we access the deep dark recesses of the human heart?
We will write from dreams and nightmares, hike the uncanny valley, re-connect with the monsters under our beds, we will face the fear of writing.
Come write, play, and shudder…
WHEN: Five Tuesdays starting September 13th, 6;30 – 9:00pm;
WHO: 8-13 writers, all genres, all levels;
COST: $220. $200 early registration by September 1st.
