Hi Guys,

Another event for next year that I thought might be of interest... as always, feel free to drop me a line at if you'd like any more info at all!

Thanks a lot


26th January, Mackworth Library, Derby
One day workshop for adults

This focused one day workshop looks at the world of horror writing, made famous by luminaries such as Edgar Allan Poe and HP Lovecraft and popular today through bestselling authors like Stephen King, Clive Barker, Dean Koontz and James Herbert. With a host of practical exercises, and an exploration of some of the greatest horror ever created, this one day workshop is perfect for anyone with the ambition to terrify their readership! Characters, atmosphere, monsters and 'the big reveal' – all this and much more will be covered!
