Complex Nests: A Virtual Discussion & Tutorial with Blackout Poet Jessica McHugh

Date: October 16, 2021 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join poet Jessica McHugh in a discussion about her Bram Stoker & Elgin Award-nominated gothic blackout poetry collection, A Complex Accident of Life, created from the pages of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. She will also read pieces from her new collection Strange Nests and discuss the tragedy that inspired her to seek out the horror hidden in the classic novel, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Participants are encouraged to bring a pencil and page of prose from a book or magazine, as Jessica will share tips for exploring the craft of blackout poetry and lead attendees in the creation of their own piece. In addition to poetry, Jessica is an internationally-produced playwright and novelist, having written several horror and sci-fi/fantasy books, as well as the 5-book YA series, the Darla Decker Diaries.
