After making your way through the material, or what I like to call the dark forest, use your resources in order to create a Gothic story of your own.

You can choose from the following list or come with an idea of your own (but it must be approved by me first!): Dramatic Reading, Xtranormal Video, Movie Creation, or creating a book cover and necessary elements to turn your short story into a book with illustrations and all!
