My “Making the Reader Squirm” workshop is part of the “Horror University” battery of affordable short-courses in writing terror. The “Squirm” workshop will be held SATURDAY MORNING, Apr. 29th, 9-11am. (Bring your laptop… and coffee! 🙂 )
Here’s an interview with HWA where I discuss the workshop.
If you’re a writer, sign up early and be a part of horror history. REGISTRATION FOR CONFERENCE IS REQUIRED on top of any fees for the individual workshops. (Early registration and signing up for multiple workshops qualifies for discounts.) If you plan to attend the Stoker banquet, there is an extra ticket you should purchase to cover your meal.
