MOUNT VERNON–One of the classes being taught at Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon this fall will include a creative writing course in recounting folktales and ghost stories, said Dr. Thom Brucie, assistant professor of creative writing and English, who will be teaching the course.

The class, scheduled with the adult learner in mind, will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday nights, beginning Wednesday, Aug. 29 in the Library Conference Room. “CRW 350-Special Topics: Oral History: Folklore, Story-Telling and Ghost Stories” is offered to both full-time students and individuals from the community, explains Dr. Brucie.


“The course will cover standard folklore components of definitions, interview techniques, as well as motifs and indexes,” said the professor. “Then, using today’s technology of digital cameras, we will find and interview local storytellers whose stories include ghost stories. We will also tell and listen to our own ghost stories.”

“The class will culminate with some sort of group presentation of gathered and remembered stories, maybe an evening of readings on tape or perhaps even a book!”
