Supernatural Summer
Can Frankenstein surf? In a lot of ways, even the scariest monsters are just like us. These ghouls, ghosts, and other creatures need to relax and unwind. Follow them on their summer vacations as Dracula works on his moon-tan and Godzilla builds a sandcastle. In this creative writing and publishing workshop, students will apply what they know about Medusa, Nessie and other mythical monsters to consider the most suitable holidays for the supernatural.
