Industry news! Get extended access to StokerCon 2021 🤡

1024 523 Writer and the Wolf Editorial

I’d been so excited for the Horror Writers’ Association’s virtual StokerCon this year and was absolutely planning to attend ALL the sessions but sadly my life is a giant ball of chaos and I ran out of time to sign up and take part. Sad face. But then they announced yesterday that all those ridiculously busy people like me could still sign up and gain access to the recordings for three days. Happy face!

If you haven’t already, I really recommend purchasing an Extended Access ticket sharpish. I’m planning to have the sessions run in the background all day today while I work and I’m particularly looking forward to:

  • Classic Horror and Why We Still Love It
  • Horror in Fairy Tales Panel
  • Music in Horror Panel
  • Tone and Setting
  • History of the Gothic Folklore in Horror

And of course, for you kidlit authors, there’s:

  • 2021 YA Authors Summer Scares Author Panel
  • 2021 Middle Grade Authors Summer Scares Author Panel

Run! Go now while you still can! 🏃‍♀️
