The Craft of Writing Ghost Stories: a Virtual Workshop with Lisa Moore

November 20, 2021

In this workshop, we will discuss character, setting, point of view, imagery, and concrete, sensual detail by employing these elements of prose to create flash fiction ghost stories. We’ll look at what it means to be haunted, how everything we try to bury or repress can crack through the hardened surface of our past. We’ll unearth the contemporary anxieties, fears, injustices and social decay that sift through our walls in iffy, so-so corporeal forms, so fleshily present they can make us shiver.

Please note: This workshop is limited to 15 participants maximum. Eligible participants must be WANL Members in good standing. Interested applicants can join WANL by clicking here.

Please continue with the event registration process for full details on what participants must submit to be considered eligible to attend.
