Writing Dark Tales – creative writing workshops

From ghost stories to tales of cosmic horror, there is nothing more enjoyable than a story that sends a shiver of fear through you. Now, Rab S. Fulton, Galway’s master of the macabre, will be teaching lovers of dark tales how to write their own tales of terror.

Over eight weeks, the workshops will examine

stories from myths, fairy tales, folklore, sci-fi, fantasy and horror to show the techniques and tools needed to create tension, narrative drive, new worlds and mesmerising creatures and characters. Participants will also be set tasks to improve and deepen their creative writing skills. As well as studying stories, the workshops include games and group work that will encourage positive criticism, critical listening and how to let the imagination run free. Workshop participants will also have a one on one session with Rab to discuss their writing.

About Rab
As well as teaching creative writing, Rab writes novels and short stories. His horror stories include Transformation a tale of terror set in Galway, described by Galway City Tribune as: "A dark, supernatural story that manages to make you cry, laugh and scare you to bits"  

Some of Rab’s dark tales can be read on line, including the werewolf story The Water Bowl, and his ongoing sci-fi blog novel Marcus Marcus & the Hurting Heart.

Rab also performs dark tales from Ireland and Scotland at his internationally acclaimed CelticTales storytelling sessions.
