Modern Monsters: A Cross-Genre Exploration
Genres: Fiction, Short Story, Writing for Performance
In this eight-week cross-genre course, we'll explore modern interpretations of "monsters." From novellas and short stories, to film, TV, and graphic novels, we'll dive into contemporary horror and examine the mirror it holds to these strange times, while developing ideas and writing of our own.
