Gothic Story Instructions:

Length: 2 pages, double-spaced, typed, 12 pt font.
--No oversized fonts

--Single-space if handwritten


--You will lose points if it is less than 2 pages

--I will NOT accept any stories longer than 3 pages

▪ This is a particular type of story called a “short short.”
Points: 25
▪ I encourage you to do a rough draft and revise it; however, you will only be handing in a final draft, and only the final draft will be scored.
This is a GOTHIC story, not a HORROR story.

--Focus on creating a creepy setting and atmosphere.

--Focus on creating creepy/grotesque characters.
--Violence should NOT be the primary aspect of your story.

--You will lose points if your story is too violent / bloody.

--you will receive a failing grade if you write a chainsaw-massacre type story.
▪ Your story must include DIALOGUE.

--Use quotation marks.



--Indent each time the speaker changes. (It is ok to have one sentence paragraphs during a dialogue passage.)
▪ TITLE your stories.
YOUR STORY SHOULD EXHIBIT GOTHIC CHARACTERS, SETTINGS, OBJECTS, AND THEMES. Refer to your gothic characteristics handout.
