Description: We are actually doing events in both the real world via The Gothic Poets society, located at Goodreads http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/113370-the-gothic-poets-society, as well as virtually in our library at our little haunted village of Wintermoon, in Second Life.
Wintermoon celebrates horror as it is our foundation. Various scary stories are told at the sim, with interactive things to do. Currently, we are reading Tale of Terror: A Study of the Gothic Romance by Edith Birkhead. WiHM links and information are in our virtual library, along with necessary reading materials.

WiHM is a permanent installation in our library, as we find it is a powerful and fun way to learn, experience and enjoy with others. Our events will run the entire month of February, but the WiHM posters and information will remain up permanently.
