I really would like to spend the week of Halloween teaching about symbols, foreshadowing, atmosphere and more in writing using short horror stories by acclaimed authors (age appropriate of course) --- on Halloween (or the Friday before Halloween) having a scary-story telling class... where we sit in a campfire-like circle and read aloud stories I select with the lights low. It would be a fun way of teaching a lot of aspects of fiction writing. Hopefully I can do it.
