Horror Writing: Tales from the Dark Side (Ages 13+)

Summer 2018

Gothic fantasy, zombie apocalypse, and alien abduction. In this camp, the focus is on the thrills and chills of speculative fiction. Twisting reality, you’ll add a dark touch to multiple literary genres with fairy tales gone horribly wrong, frightful science experiments in secret labs, and things that go bump in the night. Author Danika Dinsmore provides insights, exercises and projects as she leads you through a blood-curdling journey of reading, writing, and lively discussion. The end result is an anthology* of short work by the students.

*NOTE TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS: The final draft of each anthology story will be due one week after the course ends. Please make sure your schedule allows time to complete this work.
