Do you like scary stories? Do you like writing them?
In this four-week course for adults, writers of all levels are invited to get in touch with their dark side. During the course, there will be a variety of horror reading assignments in various sub-genres of horror. Writers will be encouraged to delve into what scares them and write about it! Respectful critiques and group shares will prove invaluable in completing chilling tales in short or long formats. From haunted houses to killers in the woods, there is something titillating and terrifying for every writer to explore.
Classes are every Wednesday night, 6pm-7:30pm, October 4th through October 25th at Mt. Pleasant Library. Register through Eventbrite to sign up for the course. Please sign up here only if you plan on attending all four classes.
