The written word

BRATTLEBORO Haunted Writing Workshop with GennaRose Nethercott: "You spent more than a year confined to your home, floating from room to room, rarely stepping outside. The outside world seemed distant and untouchable. History swept by. But you know who’s been doing this for centuries? Ghosts! Stories about haunted houses have been examining domestic claustrophobia for years—so let’s learn from the pros. In this workshop, we'll write spooky tales, dissect how to build the perfect ghost story (beginning with the question, 'What IS a ghost"?!), and of course, create a few phantoms of our own to keep us company". 2 - 4 p.m. Masking required and proof of vaccination. Ages 14 and up. All experience levels. (Repeats 10/31). $40. Hooker-Dunham Theater, 139 Main St. Information: Register:
