WHAT: The mysterious and the unexplained—that’s the focus of this workshop, which begins in the famously haunted Driskill Hotel. After taking a mini ghost-tour of the historic hotel, writers will settle down in the picturesque lobby to craft their own eerie ghost stories. The workshop ends at The Hideout, a dim little coffee shop, where we’ll read some spine-tingling snippets from Neil Gaiman and Roald Dahl, and craft suspenseful stories of our own.
WHERE: Driskill Hotel, front entrance by the 1886 Café.
