S3E9 – Monsters and Horror

Every writer has heard the adage “write what you know” at least a dozen times. What does it even mean? As writers, especially of fiction, we constantly write what we don’t know. This month, we explore how to navigate the balance between imagination and reality.

Happy Halloween! In this episode, Ley Esses and Leigh Hull talk about the things that go bump in the night and how to make it work in your stories. We discuss what makes something scary, the difference between horror and terror, and how to build a monster.

First aired October 31, 2019.
