Horror University

The Horror Writers Association is proud to announce HORROR UNIVERSITY at StokerCon 2018! Go Team Horror!

To further the HWA’s focus on education, we are devoting a significant part of our programming to a curriculum run by some of the best and brightest in the horror field. HORROR UNIVERSITY will be a series of workshops and presentations offered at Stokercon 2018 in Providence, Rhode Island. This is not your typical workshop experience and will go above and beyond what we’ve done with programming before. Workshops will be hands-on, intensive, two-hour classes. There will be a small fee for Workshops, which go to support Horror University and the instructors who make it possible.

The StokerCon Committee is now accepting proposals for workshops. If you have professional experience and expertise of interest to horror writers and would like to conduct a workshop at Stokercon 2018, please use the link below to submit a Workshop Proposal. Be sure to fill in all the fields and provide details about your credentials specific to the workshop and what tech needs your workshop may require.

PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited on the Horror University schedule. Submitting a proposal does not guarantee inclusion in final programming. The Committee will consider numerous factors in selecting the courses. For any questions, please contact James Chambers at jimchamb@optonline.net.


THE SUBMISSION PERIOD FOR HORROR UNIVERSITY WORKSHOP PROPOSALS HAS CLOSED. Returning instructors who missed the deadline may contact James Chambers at jimchamb@optonline.net


DEADLINE: All Workshop proposals must be submitted by October 1, 2017! Thank you.
