Like a story with a lot of blood and guts? No? Well, hardly anyone does! Good horror is all in the suspense, not the gore: the suspense of not knowing, of suggestion. The writer wants to creep you out, not gross you out. The longer the suspense can last, of not knowing what lurks behind the closed door, or when the killer will strike, the more horrific the story.
In this class, learn techniques of drawing out suspense, finding the horror in the mundane, and building to a horrifying but satisfying climax.
The class will be structured around studying classic and contemporary horror stories and working toward the completion of one story. Join us in Nov. 6, 2017 at www.fanstory.com!
Taught by published writer Stacia Levy.
