ONSITE: Summoning Ghosts + Writing Their Stories

What do ghosts and the things that haunt us tell us about ourselves and our society? In this class, we will take a deep dive into writing and reading ghost stories, all while learning more about key craft elements such as character, setting, theme, and conflict. By the end of the 4 weeks, every student will have completed at least one short ghost story which will be collected in a zine just in time to share with friends, family, and the community on Halloween.

Special Notes

  • Students will need to bring a notebook or computer for in-class writing exercises. Due to our limited time together, students will be asked to read assigned stories and write in-between class sessions.

    This is an ONSITE course. All onsite students are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students are expected to adhere to our COVID-19 policies. Onsite courses do not come with studio access outside of class time. Paid open studio access is available through our Studio Access Program. For more info please visit
