In 1816, the world’s first and most influential horror novel was written—by an 18 year old young woman, Mary Shelley. In his novel Summer of Monsters, author Tony Thompson recreates the fateful night on the shores of Lake Geneva when Frankenstein was first imagined.
In a free workshop for young writers aged 14 plus, Tony will provide a background to the writing of Frankenstein and lead you to develop your own ideas and style in the writing of horror fiction. Of particular interest to students considering studying Advanced English for the HSC.
Tony Thompson is one of Victoria’s leading English teachers and is the author of three books, Summer of Monsters, Vampires: The History of the Undead and Shakespeare: The Most Famous Man in London.
