Telling stories of hope and fear at ‘year’s end’

23rd November 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Since time immemorial the season to huddle by the fireside and to shiver at tales of the supernatural is ‘year’s end’. Join us beneath the Gothic vaults of the Queen’s University Graduate School to exhume this history and bring forth fresh tales of terror from your own nightmares.

The evening will begin with a brief talk on how supernatural stories look backwards and forwards as tales of caution, horrors of the past and hopes for the future. Afterwards you can join a discussion featuring readings from ghostly stories led by seasonal horror expert Dr Derek Johnston. Or you can develop your own tale of the uncanny in a structured creative writing workshop with novelist and playwright Dr Darran McCann.
