I mentioned yesterday that I had a meeting today with a certain ‘institution’. Now that the meeting has taken place and things finalized I can let you in on what’s going on.
I won’t be quite a Professor, per se, but will be Instructing a course tentatively called ‘So You Want To Be A Horror Writer? – How To Write Scary Stuff And Get It Published’ taking place in mid-February 2010 at The University of Akron in Akron, Ohio, through their Continuing & Adult Education program. The cost of the 5-week course (meeting once per week in the evenings), dates and times will be available on their website shortly. I will of course let you know when this happens.
The tentative description of the class is as follows:
Have you always been a fan of scary movies, attractions and stories but always said to yourself that you could come up with something that would really scare people but were not sure how to go about it, to put your idea to writing, create a plot and fascinating characters, find time to write, properly format your manuscript and choose a publisher? If so, this course will answer all these questions and more. This course will give you the know-how to successfully complete a novel or short story and submit it for professional publication.
So, if you live in the greater Cleveland/Akron area and have always wanted to learn how to write effectively and get published, this might just be the course for you!
More to come as it becomes available.
