Spend your Halloween afternoon in this three-hour generative workshop in which we’ll read, discuss, and write contemporary ghost stories and monster poems. Focusing in particular on literary collage techniques, we’ll draw inspiration from history, science, poetry, philosophy, tarot, zoology, mythology, religion, visual art, and a Ouija board. You’ll leave with a selection of new work guaranteed to frighten friends and family. Poets and writers from all levels of experience welcome. Costumes optional!
John Wesley Horton (aka Johnny Horton) co-directs the University of Washington’s summer creative writing program in Rome. He’s received a Washington Artist Trust GAP grant and his poems appear in Poetry Northwest, Cutbank, Notre Dame Review, Borderlands, and The Los Angeles Review.
