Event description

Description

Once considered niche even within the realms of genre fiction, interest in horror has been growing steadily for the past twenty years. In both film and fiction, even creators in other genres have been borrowing from horror to create added tension and atmosphere in their work. But how is that atmosphere created?

In this workshop, we will explore examples from contemporary horror fiction to examine how authors today are creating horrific atmosphere using only the written word. Looking also at pacing and sustaining levels of atmosphere, this workshop will seek to help writers of long- and short-form fiction create those tense, stomach-clenching moments that so many readers are coming to expect from good horror.

Vicky Brewster is a freelance editor and proof-reader based in the Swansea Valley. Although Vicky accepts commissions for most long-form fiction, she is particularly specialised in horror, thriller and speculative fiction, helping authors to give their work the creep factor.
