Traditional Southern Gothic literature has earned its place in the literary canon through classic works by authors like William Faulkner, Harper Lee, Carson McCullers, Tennessee Williams, and Flannery O’Conner. Come learn how current writers are rediscovering this fascinating sub-genre dealing with disenfranchised voices in warped communities—not necessarily set in the American South.
The workshop will start by examining some much-beloved Southern Gothic works, then
move into current examples, and end the day with you generating new
material of your own that embodies some of the characteristics of the
Southern Gothic Revival. You’ll also learn about exciting places to
submit your work after you’ve spit-shined it.
