Gothic Charm School is an invention of Jillian Venters also known as the Lady Of Manners. Since 1998 she's been writing " an essential guide for goths and those who love them " .
"the world of Gothic Charm School, where the Lady of the Manners spends a not-inconsiderable amount of time trying to gently persuade others in her chosen subculture that being a Goth and being polite is much, much more subversive than just wearing black t-shirts with ‘”edgy” sayings on them.
There’s an added benefit to being a Goth and having good manners; it’s actually more shocking to some people than the “Booooo! I’m so spooky and scary!” freakshow antics they expect from Goths. " ( taken from the official site http://www.gothiccharmschool.com/)
She writes articles both for young goths and for parents of goths or elder goths. Here are some example of the tematics she wrote about:
For the younger Goths:
Help, my parents won’t let me be a Goth!
Talking to parents about their disapproval of your gothy ways.
Goths and school.
On dealing with school dress codes.
For the parents of younger Goths, and for gothy parents:
Raising a Goth.
Being a gothy parent.
Of parents worrying about “Drama”.
For the ElderGoths:
Too old to be a Goth? and Too old to be a Goth, revisited.
Returning to your gothy style after a hiatus.
Some fashion advice:
A quick primer on achieving a gothy look.
Of dressing to flatter one’s figure, and of Elegant Gothic Lolita, Deathrock, and Victorian fashion.
Some fashion advice specifically for the gentlemen.
Recently a book based on her site has been released and got quite a big success (the pic at the beginning of the article is the book cover!!). You can find info about it in the site. I also suggest to take a look at the Lady Of Manners videos like this one:
