Ghost Story Writing – Fall 2023

Ghosts reflect to us both the uncanny and the all too familiar. Their terrifying power can be used to hurt or to heal in narrative. Join horror author Elizabeth Kilcoyne in exploring the spirit realm through writing, and visit it on October 27 with Marley Knockers Paranormal!

Elizabeth Kilcoyne is a YA Horror author from Lexington. Her novel, Wake the Bones, was a finalist for the William C. Morris Award.

This class is suitable for all levels. The class is open to students ages 16+. 

Students registered in this class can purchase a discounted ticket to MK Paranormal’s event at the Carnegie Center on Friday, October 27. Limit one ticket per student.
