Creatures out of our nightmares, denizens of the shadows, yes, and inhabitants of fantasy and science fiction, and the human variety, are often found in literary fiction. Symbols? Metaphor? Evil made flesh. In this seminar we will discuss and examine monsters and their appearances in various stories and then select one of our own and begin a tale with this creature in a starring role. Nominations, anyone? If you are registering for this class, please let us know a creature you might wish to explore.
