Frankenstein Story Challenge

Friday, Jan 5, 2018 7:00 PM - 11:59 PM

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s science fiction classic, Frankenstein, WestportWRITES is challenging writers to follow in her legendary footsteps. Register online.

Participants will recreate the “challenge” laid out by Lord Byron to his guests Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Shelley in the rainy summer of 1816: Let’s “each write a ghost story.” The Library will become the Villa Diodati, and there will be writing challenges, readings and a screening of Frankenstein to keep everyone inspired.
