All Levels | This class will explore how horror tropes and “scary fiction” can be used in ambitious and socially conscious storytelling. Through discussion of relevant texts, we will determine how we can use fear to illuminate something essential about the world around us. Readings include work by Shirley Jackson, Octavia Butler, Jordan Peele, Victor LaValle, and Samanta Schweblin. Students will generate and share new work, and can expect to come away with at least one full-length story draft or novel chapter.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
