January Classes 2023

Hello everyone and welcome to 2023! We have a whole new year of classes to look forward to. As always, you can browse classes and sign up for them through out eventbrite page. Just a new year reminder that Romancing the Gothic is a free education project. We believe in making educational resources free but we run entirely on donations and we’re only just getting by. If you want to (and can) support the project, you can do so through Ko-fi (one off or monthly) or patreon (monthly or yearly – the yearly option has a discount!) Thanks to everyone who’s supported us and here’s to another year of excellent classes. You can catch up with previous talks through our YouTube channel or our ‘Class Schedules‘ page.

Goths for Breakfast!

Before I give you information on our January talks, some exciting news! We’re holding our first charity event. On 5th February, we’re running a marathon day of classes and workshops with great guests. All the classes are online and most are recorded so even if you can’t make some (or even any!), you’ll still get sent a recording. You can join in from anywhere around the world and choose your donation amount. Find the programme and buy your ticket here.

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
