Exploring and Creating Gothic Fiction

About

With Dr Kevin Corstorphine

This online masterclass will be a lively session where participants will be introduced to some of the main ways of thinking about horror in fiction and film, including sections on cutting-edge research in the field. It will also be an inclusive discussion, with all views welcome, as well as a chance to talk about your favourite examples of the spooky and macabre. Creative writers will find useful tips to get the most out of the genre in their writing.

Dr Kevin Corstorphine is Lecturer in American Studies at the University of Hull and has previously lectured in English at Hull's Scarborough Campus. He teaches undergraduate modules including American Gothic, has supervised several PhDs on the subject, and is an active researcher in horror, gothic, and 'weird' fiction. He has published widely in the field with his latest major work being the 2018 Palgrave Handbook to Horror Literature (as editor, with Laura R. Kremmel).

These classes will be run on Zoom - click here to download.

It will help if you can find somewhere in your home with a good internet connection, and if you have some, use headphones (ideally with a built in microphone) as this will help reduce feedback during the session.
