Throughout mainstream media, the female character has often been reduced to a common trope that focuses heavily on the oppression of women rather than showcasing them as strong, independent, self-willed characters…

However, within the genre of Gothic Femininity, female authors have utterly devoured these tropes.

Join Chimen Kouri and Patrick Zavorskas to explore your creative gifts and empower yourself through the lens of Gothic Femininity. 

This workshop will focus heavily on female vulnerability, repressed sexual urges, damaged families, the struggle of coming of age, and trauma—while also showcasing the significance of women as an innovative perspective as they exhibit dominance, courage, and discernment.

No experience necessary… all welcome!

Chimen will offer references and highlight how authors and their stories can be used as tools for healing and empowerment to overcome the stereotypes often inflicted onto women.

You will then be invited to tell your own story in writing, as Chimen guides you to write a piece inspired by Gothic Feminism…

Chimen and Patrick will offer feedback on your work, and you will be invited to share your writing if you choose…
