Women in Horror Facebook Spotlights by Lori M. Myers

Event: Women in Horror Spotlights on Facebook

Date: Throughout February

Location: Lori’s Facebook Group

Organizer(s): Lori M. Myers

Contact: lorimyers316@gmail.com

Description: People can’t believe I write dark fiction and horror, not only because of my good nature but also because I’m a woman. I want to dispel the stereotype by celebrating women in horror and showcasing both renowned authors in the genre as well as those just starting out.

My Facebook writer group page will be the “landing strip” on which I will focus on several female horror writers per week during the month of February. This is an educational opportunity for readers and doubters.

Description: Once coworkers, always friendly competitors for the spotlight, Tracy Mathews and Minki Kim share their love of horror movies — and debating each other — as they retell every gory detail of one horror film each week. These creatives by day, novice film critics by night, walk through one movie from start to finish, laughing at themselves along the way.

Join the hosts for their first ever mini-sode, airing on iTunes on the evening of Feb 19, when they do something a little different just for this special month. They’ll bring some of their favorite females to discuss who’ve impacted the genre, including screenwriters, producers, and memorable actresses.

It’s back to the usual format on Feb 26, when they walk through a full movie, but in this episode they’ll be discussing Dearest Sister, a Shudder exclusive, directed by Mattie Do—the first female director of a Lao feature film.

Location: Online

Organizer(s): Dawn & Jen

Contact: podcast@womenincaskets.com

Website:  http://womenincaskets.com

Social Media: Twitter @womenincaskets // Patreon 

Description:  The Women In Caskets is a bi-weekly feminist horror podcast, looking at all the things that scare you through the discerning eyes of a pair of progressive Texans. For the month of February, the Women In Caskets are hanging out with some of their favorite women and they invite you to have a seat!

On February 1st, actor Jessy Schwartz (@JessySchwartz) joins the Women for a slumber party to watch, mock, and be grossed out by the 2006 movie Slither, all in “real” time.

On February 15th, the Women have the honor of hosting independent writer/director Anna Biller! We talk about her most recent film, the immaculately styled The Love Witch, and chat about the inspiration for her lush visuals and strong style. There will be quite a bit of gushing as The Love Witch was one of the Women’s favorite films of 2016.

Other content will be scattered throughout the month on our Patreon feed for Patrons and non-Patrons alike, so pull up a chair, plug in your favorite podcatcher, and listen along!
