Vampires — werewolves — shape-shifting tentacle aliens — five-hundred-foot dinosaurs with radioactive breath... So much of horror revolves around monsters. And while it's fine to just have something scary that wants to kill you, the best monsters MEAN something. They have stuff to say about the things we fear. If you want to write memorable horror, meaningful monsters make a huge difference.
In this class, I'll explore some iconic monsters of the page and the screen, discuss what real-world fears they connect with, and share tips and tricks for bringing your own gnarly creatures to vivid life for readers, leaving ample time for Q&A and discussion of the scary citizens of your own stories.
