August 2021
HWA RI – Chapter Meeting

Attendees: Christa Carmen, Joshua Rex, Larissa Glasser, Jason Parent

Topics: Chapter communication - emails, Google docs, Discord/Slack, etc. What's the best option for our group's needs? Zoom reading... or wait until October and have "spooky" in-person reading? Perhaps at Lovecraft Arts & Sciences, if they have a good experience with holding the Lovecraft Film Festival in-person this weekend (chapter member Victoria Dalpe is doing a reading there, Sun. 08/22 @11 am). In-person events... Riff Raff? Most likely. Next meeting is Thursday, 09/16.

  • Christa Carmen will have a story in Orphans of Bliss: Tales of Addiction Horror, coming in the spring of 2022 from Wicked Run Press. Mark Matthews' Garden of Fiends and Lullabies for Suffering are counted among Christa's favorite horror anthologies ever, and the TOC for this last installment is an unbelievable curation of talent. Thanks to Mark, and congrats to fellow contributors Cassandra Khaw, Josh Malerman, Sam Kolesnik, Shawn A. Cosby, John FD Taff, & Kealan Patrick Burke!!
