March Workshop


Oh, the Horror! By J.K. Coi
March 16-31, 2012

EC authors know how to make readers tremble…but can they make you Shiver? Learn about one of EC’s newest genres—erotic horror! J.K. Coi is one of the debut authors for this spine-tingling genre and she’ll be sharing her views about what makes the horror genre one of the most famous and intense forms of entertainment.
One of the basic principles of horror is to take something that everyone is familiar with, and twist it until it becomes the very thing they've always dreaded...which is a good reason why there has always been sex in horror. This introduction will consist of examples of sex in horror, from film, art and literature. Participants will also enjoy an overview of the expectations and criteria of the horror genre and a brief discussion about the integral association between horror and sex.
Finally, the workshop will touch on craft techniques for the writer, as well as practical in-class exercises and advice. Attendees will be invited and encouraged to discuss and ask questions. 

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: J.K. Coi is a multi-published, award winning author of Paranormal Romance, Steampunk, and Horror, and writes Upper YA Fantasy as Chloe Jacobs. She believes that every story should have at least a little darkness to counterbalance the light at the end of the tunnel (and sometimes that darkness completely eclipses the light). When she isn’t writing, she loves to watch (dissect) horror movies and read (devour) horror books. Visit her online at www.jkcoi.com and www.chloejacobs.com
