Comma Press Online Horror Short Story Course with Andy Murray

This course from Comma Press is about the short story AND the horror genre.


Over the course of 6 workshops, you’ll get a handle on the predominant narrative structures and techniques used by short story writers, and implement them in your own work, including how to improve the characterisation, dialogue, and narrative voice. 


There's an extremely rich history of the horror short story. The form, with its inherent claustrophobia, intensity and gift for narrative tricks, is a perfect match for the genre. In this course we'll be examining some classic examples from this history, unpicking how they work and looking at how these techniques can be used to unnerve the contemporary reader.
