[Horror Writers Association] Guest Column "Dark Horror: Shedding Skins"

For my fellow professional members of the Horror Writer Association, my guest column for Blood and Spades: Poets of the Dark Side is up. Entitled: "Dark Horror: Shedding Skins," we look at Year of the Snake, Lao American horror poetry, the work of Saymoukda Vongsay, Burlee Vang and the Robo Sutra.

A big thanks to Margaret Ballif Boston for inviting me to expound. You can check my guest column out at:

I'll post highlights of the column after May.

This column also includes a presentation of several poems, "The Tiger Penned at Kouangsi Falls," "Charms," "Meditation on a Wandering Arb," and "Fragment of a Dream of Atlantean Yellows" which will all be in DEMONSTRA this year.

The Horror Writer Association is a worldwide non-profit organization of professional writers and publishing professionals dedicated to promoting the interests of Horror and Dark Fantasy writers. It was formed in the 1980s with the help of many of the field's greats, including Joe Lansdale, Robert McCammon, and Dean Koontz.

The group was originally called HOWL (Horror and Occult Writers League), but changed for a time to the Horror Writers of America when they formally organized. HWA now has over 1,000 members and regional chapters throughout North America, Europe, Australia and Japan, which led to the current name of the organization, the Horror Writer Association.
