WHO'S IT FOR?
The horror fan looking to dip their toes into the wonderful world of writing scary stories.
The writer looking for a kick up the arse to sit down and write something from beginning to end whilst picking up a few new tips and tricks along the way.
The writer looking for like-minded creatives to read their work, give feedback, and to offer a little moral support.
The burgeoning novelist who wants to try something a little shorter before jumping in at the deep end.
WHO'S IN CHARGE?
You'll have access to a whole host of working writers but this challenge itself will be lead by award-winning writer, filmmaker, and podcaster, Luke Kondor, and international best-selling horror writer, Daniel Willcocks.
Together, they’ll be taking you through the lessons they’ve learned from a combined decade of writing and publishing short stories, the 7-day challenges Luke used to make his award-winning film, Keith, and the techniques used to launch and producing the chart-topping horror fiction podcast, The Other Stories.
Think of Luke & Dan as your camp counsellors here to offer guidance, support, and a helping hand through your journey.
