Date Sunday April 16th 2023, 10:00 - 16:00
Location Hebden Bridge Town Hall

This writing day will delve into the darkness that lies beneath in the shape of history, landscape and legend. Whether you’re working on a novel or short story, or just starting out as a writer, you will find out how gothic narratives enrich genres from historical fiction to folk horror. Join Andrew Michael Hurley and Katherine Clements, experienced writers of dark fictions, as they deliver workshops which will help you find the darkness in your characters and settings and illuminate the knotty plots and themes at your disposal.

This event begins at 10:00 but writers are encouraged to arrive for 9:30 so they can get acclimatised to the venue, its location, and enjoy a tea or coffee.

There's nothing quite like an Arvon course: that feeling of learning, of discovering new things about yourself and the people you meet along the way.

It was great to meet other writers and forge connections. It was insightful to hear directly from established authors and poets about their practice and influences in an approachable and intimate space.
