Fear is a basic emotion. Whether you are writing a thriller, a mystery, a romance or a war story – sooner or later you have to deal with fear. Will I make it? Does she love me? Will the dread pirate Roberts storm the castle? Yet there is an awful lot more to writing a good ghost story or a fine creepy horror tale than simply throwing a monster into the mix. This two day workshop in how to successfully craft and create your very own scary tale is designed for beginners and experienced writers alike. Find out how to create believable characters that must face up against the truly unbelievable. Learn how to shape your story, find your voice and make the unbelievable undeniably authentic. Come and join veteran ghost storyteller and horror author Steve Vernon on a quest for your inner booga-booga.
