It was a dark and stormy night, so the legend says, when a group of friends held a competition to see who could write the best ghost story. From this contest, Mary Shelley produced her most famous work, Frankenstein. As part of the English Department’s bicentenary events for Frankenstein, the graduate students of the Eighteenth-and-Nineteenth-Century Subfield invite both graduate and undergraduate students to entertain and scare us with their own ghost tales. Further submission details can be found here.

Students, faculty, and the public are then invited to an open reading on Halloween night. The winners will be invited to share their work, and we will celebrate the Halloween season and Shelley’s lasting influence on horror and science fiction with themed treats and goodies. Check out the other series events here.

Hosted by the 18th and 19th Century Subfield and the Department of English.

All events are free and open to the public. For disabilities accommodations and information about the venue, email Terri Sutton at sutt0063@umn.edu or call 612-626-1528.
