Campfire Tales for the Digital Age
Updated: Jun 9
M.J. Hearle was born in Port Macquarie, a small coastal town on the Mid-North coast of Australia. Addicted to stories from a young age, it was somewhat inevitable that he turned to dealing them himself. His first novel,Winter’s Shadow, was published by Pan Macmillan in 2011,Winter’s Light followed in 2012, andClaudette in the Shadows in 2013.
"Winter's Shadow is dark and haunting. A stunning tale of love, loss
and hope that kept me reading well into the night."
— Jessica Shirvington, author of Embrace
M.J. Hearle lives with his wife, Greta, son, Bailey, and daughter, India, in Glebe, Sydney.
Using the popular CreepyPasta story 'Candle Cove' as an example, I'd like to take students through the creation of a scary 'campfire tale' through digital communication methods like Reddit, Email, Twitter, and Facebook.
