I Am The Ghost: Writing Haunting Characters

  • Surel's Place 212 E 33rd St Garden City, ID USA (map)

Surel's Place resident Bridget Brewer will teach this workshop combining writing and theater. Participants will learn how to listen and write for the characters already haunting their bodies through both writing and acting exercises. At the end of the 3 hours, workshop participants will perform for the rest of the class (and the ghosts conjured during the afternoon).

For ages 15 and up

Scholarships available by writing


Bridget Brewer is a writer, performer, artist, and collaborator living in Austin, Texas. Body horror, Hell, personal apocalypses, witchcraft, monsters, textures of hybridity: these are her wet, fungal artistic concerns. Through research and patient practice, she has cultivated them carefully into work that is part performance, part fiction, part poem. In 2016, she earned her MFA in Literary Arts at Brown University, where she worked with Brian Evenson (A Collapse of Horses) and Thalia Field (Experimental Animals). Since then, her work has been featured in Tarpaulin Sky Magazine, The Collagist, Threadcount, Black Sun Lit, and other literary publications, and has been performed most notably at The Hideout Theatre and Wage House Theatre.
