Workshop: Writing New Southern Gothic: Dark Humor, Weird Characters and Strange Places with Darlyn Finch Kuhn

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.
