Shocking beginnings, the predictable versus the unpredictable, character vulnerabilities, and much more. Director and screen-writer Devi Snively lays out the techniques common to horror movies that can help spark your stories and deepen them as well.

For a list of my fave craft books and the most recent works by our guests, go to our Bookshop page.

An award-winning screenwriter/filmmaker, modestly published short fiction author and contributor to Beyond the Bechdel (a feminist cinema blog), Devi Snively is an alumnus of AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women and Fox Studios Filmmakers Lab, and scholarship winner of the Nostos Screenwriting Retreat and Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing. She recently graduated from GrubStreet's Novel Incubator and is currently revising her first novel and working on a collection of short speculative stories.
