Dark & Weird Writing

A Pen In Each Hand

By Baker

  1. Write a horror story using the these Jeremy C. Shipp story titles as elements: parasite, invitation, dog, camp, losing.
    1. Challenge yourself to add humor to your horror story.
  2. With the theme of “transformation” in mind, (1) write for 20 minutes (2) write 500 words or (3) incorporate it into an existing story or poem.
  3. With the theme of “equality” in mind, (1) write for 20 minutes (2) write 500 words or (3) incorporate it into an existing story or poem.
  4. Write something simultaneously as dark and as weird as you can imagine. Set it aside and come back to it as an editor and suggest where the “author” could go darker or weirder. Come back later as a writer and use the “editor” suggestions to rework your story.
