Event description
Author and church minister Peter Laws will be sharing his experience of the tensions and opportunities of working within the horror genre.

About this Event

Our Brum Sputnik hub meets each term to help Christian artists connect and think through issues regarding faith and art.

As usual, we’ll be hosting a guest artist, who’ll be presenting a specific project to us as a platform for discussion. This term, we’re delighted to have Peter Laws with us at the Birmingham Sputnik Hub.

Peter is an author, journalist, film critic and public speaker with a fascination for the macabre. He is the author of The Frighteners: Why We Love Monsters, Ghosts, Death & Gore and the creator of the Matt Hunter novel series. He is going to be exploring the topic of whether Christians should engage with horror and opening up a discussion of the morbid in art. He will also be available to talk with writers about the writing process and how he got published.

_______________

As usual we will be having lunch together, discussing art and faith, praying and you'll have the opportunity to share what you've been working on - so come prepared!
