Books with Bite Highlights Foundation Workshop with Me & Micol Ostow

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be teaching a new writing workshop in 2015—this time in the fall and co-led with a certain brilliant author I admire like crazy, Micol Ostow, author of the terrifically terrifying AMITY! So if you’re writing a horror or otherwise dark & twisty YA or middle-grade novel (spine-chilling horror! hauntings! ghost stories! psychological thrillers! dark magical realism! serial killers! suspense! Gothic tales! I could go on!) and if you’d like to go to the truly wonderful Highlights Foundation in Pennsylvania for a five-day intensive workshop next year, I hope you’ll consider taking ours!

I realize this photo isn't at all creepy, so it may not go with the theme of our workshop... But these are some of the cabins writers stay in at Highlights! Aren't they perfect?

The Books with Bite Workshop and Retreat at Highlights will run September 16–20, 2015, and if you like to plan your life way early, you can apply RIGHT NOW! For the full description of the workshop and the link to apply, please visit the Highlights Foundation website.

Plus, if you register by May 1, you will get 10% off tuition, so apply sooner rather than later… Writers will be paired with a mentor, either Micol or me, and will be workshopped in small groups, so spaces are limited. Admissions will be rolling, and we will be reviewing applications as they come.

…In fact, I heard we already got our first application this morning! Isn’t that amazing?

Feel free to ask me any questions here, in the comments, or via email.

And of course, if horror and dark fiction isn’t your thing, or if you’re closer to the West Coast, and you would still like to do a workshop with me, the deadline to apply for my upcoming June 2015 YA novel workshop & retreat at the Djerassi Resident Artists Program in California is February 26. Djerassi applications are now open, and spaces are limited!

That’s my news for now! Now back to writing my own book!
