Online Class | Phantasmagoria: Writing Monsters & Myths [Elizabeth Christman]
VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).
All Levels | From wyverns to werewolves and goblins to ghouls, our literary landscape is filled with imaginary creatures ranging from the mischievous to the downright diabolical. But how does one effectively capture the essence of something that doesn’t exist? How does one weave a nightmare or conjure a fairy tale? How can we, as writers, capture the essence of something fantastical? This class will provide an instructive framework through the reading and discussion of prose that focuses on or features unreal creatures. Students will produce three short stories. Most writing will begin in class, with a focus on feedback and revision.
