A masterclass for writers who want to produce unsettling works of fiction. We’ll experiment with different approaches to the macabre, from Edgar Allan Poe’s formula for horror to contemporary versions of the uncanny. This will be a chance to experiment with new approaches, in order to inspire new pieces of writing or to help you develop work in progress. The class is suitable for new writers and those who are more experienced. You can expect a discussion of key writers and approaches, as well as some time to write and share work. We may discuss some gruesome topics—you have been warned!

Her debut novel, Sealed (Dead Ink Books, 2017) is a horrifying tale of body mutation and environmental contamination, described by The Guardian as “not for the faint-hearted… a marvellous first novel”.
