Werewolves, Chainsaws, and Clowns - Oh my!
Horror is a genre whose origins date back to antiquity. Authors throughout the ages have toyed with readers’ fears and anxieties, and they’ve given us recurring nightmares in the process. This class examines the best practices of writing horror for a diverse range of audiences and will equip participants to better understand what makes horror work in their fiction. *This course contains mild language and violence.*
