There was a group of writers that would gather. They decided to have a contest, who can write a scary story.
However, Marry Shelly was the only one who published a book.
FUN FACT: All the people that would gather at this "little meeting" all had a very tragic death. And they only lived for a very short period of time.
Percy Bysshe Shelley drowned in 1822. Lord Byron died in 1824 of what was likely sepsis. John Polidori committed suicide in 1821. Mary made it out of the 1820s at least, but she died in 1851 of a brain tumor. however, Claire Clairmont was the only one who didn’t partake in the writing challenge and she ended up living a long time..
