December Programme

We’re rounding out the Romancing the Gothic year with a month on ‘Love and Horror’ and we’ve got some real treats for you! You can links to all the classes below. They’re all free to access but we do need donations to keep running so if you can support the project, please do here or here or by choosing a ‘donation’ ticket.

Let’s see what we’ve got to look forward to, shall we!? You can find more information on the content of the talks by clicking on the links.

This started off as a story blog to share the little fictions that I like to write but it's turned into something a bit more Goth! I'm Dr Sam Hirst and I research the Gothic, theology and romance and at the moment I'm doing free Gothic classes online! We also have readalongs, watchalongs and reading groups. And I post fun little Gothic bits when I have the chance. Find me on twitter @RomGothSam
