About this course:
This workshop-based course supports students who have completed Horror Novel I. Students work toward achieving three goals: completing their first fifty pages of their novels in progress, discovering (or refining) the structure of the narrative arc of their work, and understanding the psychology of creating large written works within the horror genre. Along the way, students also explore questions of building suspense, developing character, and what happens next (such as film, sequels, fans, agents etc.) in a small supportive group. The goal of this workshop is to complete fifty pages of your horror novel.
