    Sixth formers are invited to take a trip Beyond Twilight and enter the exciting and imaginative world of young adult Gothic fiction.

    In an event that is the first of its kind, the Lancaster University workshop for readers, writers and scholars will bring together authors, figures from the publishing industry, academics and students to explore the surge of Gothic writing aimed at young adults in the last 10 to 15 years.

    Dr Catherine Spooner, Senior Lecturer in the Department of English and Creative Writing, said: When people think of teenagers reading Gothic, they think of Twilight.

    But the massive commercial success of Stephenie Meyers novels tends to obscure the work of other authors in this field.

    The full-day workshop on Friday September 27 is designed for sixth-formers studying A-level English Literature and/or Creative Writing. To register for the event, please visit http://www.lancs.ac.uk/beyondtwilight/
