Spooktober NaNo Prep Workshop

Octocon is delighted to present a new FREE writers’ workshop from Dublin NaNoWriMo Municipal Liaisons Kat Dodd and Paul Carroll. It will be run through Zoom and all you need to bring is your attention and maybe pen & paper!

Spooktober NaNo Prep: Writing Horror and Preparing for NaNoWrimo

Saturday 11th October, 2pm – 3:30pm Irish time (GMT+1)

Literature has to build the atmosphere for horror in a different way than can be done in film. Writing 50,000 words in thirty days is a horror story for some people. Join us as we break things down into bite-size pieces to prevent people from being overwhelmed by it all. We’ll go over the basics and talk about different ways to layer in a horror atmosphere from the very beginning.

Registration is required (a Zoom account is not). Note that the meeting time is shown as 1:30pm but attendees will be placed in a waiting room until the workshop’s 2pm start time.
