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.
