Horror Unleashed

Let’s journey into the deepest, darkest corners of our minds, where our imaginations make us shiver, squirm, and silently scream. Yes, we’ll be writing our own page-turning horror stories and screenplays, the kind that make your pulse raise and your hair stand on end.

We’ll visit works by masters of the genre, like Edgar Allen Poe, Shirley Jackson, and Stephen King, while discovering newer voices like Steven Graham Jones, Victor LaValle, and Carmen Maria Machado. And because horror can’t be contained to the written page, we’ll check out selected scenes from movies like Psycho, Nightmare on Elm Street, Shaun of the Dead, and Get Out.

If your heart is in your throat just thinking about the possibilities, register now – you never know what will happen if you hesitate…

*Please note, masks are required in the common areas of the Cornerstone Center. Thank you!
