One goal of fiction is to find the truth inside the lie. Writing within the horror genre allows us to identify what truly scares us now on an individual, communal, or societal level. Teaching Artist Benjamin Brindise will take participants through the reasons we write horror, the difference between terror, horror, and the gross-out, and how to get started writing your own scary story.

This workshop is FREE, aimed at young students aged 12–18, and limited to 12 participants.
