The Horror Writers Association (HWA) opened submissions from its members for the Poetry Showcase Volume VIII beginning April 1. Stephanie Wytovich is the editor for the volume. This year’s judges, along with Stephanie, includes Sara Tantlinger and myself. You can purchase Poetry Showcase Vol. VII here.
Only HWA members (of any status) may submit. The reason for this can be found in the word “Showcase.” The HWA is very proud of the tradition of poetry in the horror genre and of the HWA’s support for poetry. This volume is designed to showcase the talents of HWA members which is why it is now limited to members. We will verify membership and if a non-member submits he or she must obtain some level of membership prior to the final cut for the volume to be considered. Submission window closes on May 31.
