Let’s Write a Ghost Story
Do you like to tell scary stories? In this class, we'll diagram examples of ghost stories and talk about "real" haunted houses, then write our own stories based on our own haunted houses, landscapes, objects, and even time periods, featuring our own spooky characters. Think of this class as spending a night around the campfire in the woods with your friends, but without any mosquitos to ruin the fun.
