Event Description
Facing the Monsters Together




(For BIPOC adults interested in writing/exploring horror fiction) 

Facing the Monsters Together is a writing workshop wherein horror is our goal and fear is our weapon. In this creative writing shell, participants will develop stories that shock by use of visual, musical, and literary prompts. Here, we will explore what terrifies you, and how to use horror as a means to process your fears. In Facing the Monsters Together create our own horror rules based on our own personal fears, begin to craft our own horror stories, and receive supportive feedback without fear or favour. Don’t be scurred.
