Ghost Writing Workshops

Ghouls, goblins, and giggles, oh my! Join us each fall as we create our own ghost stories sure to surprise and cause shrieks of laughter. With guidance from our teachers Sarah Magill and Valerie Cumming, all 4th - 6th graders are invited to learn how Thurber created his hilarious and spooky ghost story and how to incorporate suspense, ghosts, and humor all into one tale.

Workshops take place at various library branches around Central Ohio during September and October. Registration is required via each library branch. Check back in the fall for more information!

Instructors: Sarah Magill and Valerie Cumming are both freelance writers who have taught various classes at Thurber Summer Writing Camp, Writing Wizards classes, and our Fable Writing Workshops.

Please contact Jessica Sarber at with any questions about Ghost Writing Workshops.
