About this event

Discover what gothic fiction is, how it relates to mainstream writing, and how to write it. Spend time with Kathy George, award-winning author of Sargasso, close-reading famous examples from historical and contemporary gothic literature to see how tone, mood and tension is cultivated. Learn how Australian authors have taken the gothic and made it their own, and how the genre can be utilised to strengthen and improve your own work.
