Introducing…The Nightmare Institute (PLUS, The Return of the Nicole Cushing Postcard Club)
I’m proud to announce the launch of my new writing instruction series, The Nightmare Institute. Basically, the Institute will offer a fresh fifteen minute video lesson on horror writing each month. While I’ll be sharing brief (two or three minute) snippets of these lessons on my Youtube channel, the entire fifteen minute lesson will only be made available to Patreon backers. (Yes, I’m starting a Patreon page. I suppose I buried the lede.)
The first lesson will be posted for Patreon backers on April 17.
I’ve been teaching writing workshops at horror conventions throughout the U.S. (and at the odd college campus) for several years now. However, these online lessons will present completely new material, lessons I’ve never taught before. They’re the result of many years of thinking about how horror fiction works, and several months of planning how best to deliver those lessons.
As part of this Patreon campaign, I’m also bringing back the Nicole Cushing Postcard Club, too! Plunk five bucks into the hat, and I’ll send you a goofy postcard with a signed doodle! (Like this example, below.)
Even a dollar contribution gets you access to backers-only updates on forthcoming projects and works in progress.
So yeah, take a gander at the Patreon link. Whatever you decide to pledge, I’m grateful for your support.
