Scary Stories

  • Nashville Public Library 615 Church Street Nashville, TN, 37219 United States (map)

Hook hands, moonlight, and rumblings from the deep. Who doesn’t love a scary story? In this workshop, we’ll learn ways to make readers feel unsettled and try different techniques for upping a story’s fear factor. Then we’ll mine the dark corners of our imaginations and start our own scary stories.

SLANT workshops are intended for high school students. We meet in StudioNPL on the third floor of the Nashville Public Library. This is a free event open to students from any area, but workshop seating is limited, so please click to RSVP.
