Hello! I’ve published my first booksofm.com newsletter using Substack. As I mentioned in that post, I wanted to try something different and more personal. This week’s theme is a little treat–a writing exercise I’m discussing in my upcoming “Horror in Gaming” class.
Check out my very first booksofm.com newsletter on Substack!
Popping in to share a brief message. I’ve got a fun class coming up!
Class: Horror in Games
Class Date: Saturday, October 24, 2020, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific Time.
In gaming, the answer to “Is horror a mood or a genre?” is “YES!” In this workshop, gaming veteran Monica Valentinelli addresses how to include horror in your non-horror games, how to write horror game material without leaning on problematic tropes, and how safety tools can enhance your horror game’s experience. You’ll also learn a few off-page techniques that help facilitate that feeling of dread from start to finish.
Classes are taught online and require a reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required.
This class will have downloadable slides. It will be appropriate for game writers and for DMs, too! Scholarships are available.
To sign up, visit: Horror in Games at the Rambo Academy for Wayward Writers. You will be signing up for the class with our fearless administer Cat Rambo!
