Class Experience

I have been writing and publishing horror for over 16 years, including short fiction works and content for horror roleplaying games. I have mentored young writers entering the horror writing industry, many of whom I have watched develop into successful, productive writers paid to work within the genre.
Students should plan to devote time each week to writing and editing their stories. 
Students should have access to a word processing program.  I strongly encourage the use of Google Docs, so students can access their work anywhere and share their work with classmates for peer editing and feedback, and so that parents can also check on their students' progress if desired.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Horror is often a matter of personal perception. One person may find werewolves or zombies terrifying, while another may be afraid of clowns or the dark. While all work produced for this class will be appropriate for the indicated age range in terms of content, parents should feel free to inform me of any particular phobias or other fears their children need to avoid over the course of this class.
