Holding Hands With the Monster: Writing Horror From the Outside In

All Levels | Are you ready to invite the monster in? Join Sarah Gailey to learn the sensory and psychological secrets behind making your stories truly horrifying. This course will guide you through an iterative process of sowing deep, effective horror into a piece of fiction to take it from ordinary to harrowing.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
