Halsteads Horrific Poems started out as a lack of finding much horror reading material for middle school aged students and pretty quickly turned into something altogether different. The project started off being aimed at that age group but has since left that demographic to focus on adults.
The question went something like this... how can I get middle schoolers to read more? The ones I knew, loved horror and loved to be scared but most of the books I found were either too adult or too childish. So I set out to write some stories and stalled out... I''m not a story writer- I''m a spoken word poet, so I started wrting horror poetry... I liked it, the kids liked it- BUT it wasn''t "scary" unless I performed it- so how make it scary if I wasn''t performing it? Enter recording it... but then they aren''t reading now are they? So it transformed into a computer presentation. Now I had my medium! I could have words! I could have sound! I could have pictures! I could make it interactive! AND I could make it scare the poo out of you...
Of course at this point it''s perhaps little too horrific and graphic for some middle schoolers and a little more dark and twisted than I would think most parents would be comfortable with... so perhaps future projects will actually hit that target...
UNITL THEN darken the room, turn on your computer, lock the doors and beware!!!
