*EXTRA DATE ADDED*
What are you afraid of? Join acclaimed author Kirsty Logan for this evening workshop on the fundamental elements of writing horror fiction.
Through a combination of practical advice, discussion, and writing exercises, Kirsty will take you through the steps of how to write horror. You'll explore how to develop the seed of an unsettling idea, discover how much you can leave to the reader's imagination through plotting and writing techniques, and analyse what makes a good horror story for the 21st century. Moving beyond old-fashioned ghost stories and classic thrills and chills, you'll leave this workshop ready to embrace the eerie and carve out your very own terrifying tale.
There will be approx. 15 minutes reserved for Q&A at the end of the workshop. If you'd like to submit a question to Kirsty in advance, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
