Horror Writers Association



The time has come again. The HWA is going to be running the month-long Veterans in Horror Spotlight this November, coordinated by David Rose and Chance Fortune. We’re talking books this year. If you are an HWA member and a military veteran (defined as a former service member of any uniformed, national military), we invite you to join us. Please send us an email message to veterans@horror.org by October 20, 2023.

In this message, please include:

  • Your name
  • Headshot (we didn’t keep the ones from last year)
  • Bio (under 100 words)
  • A write-up (under 250 words) on a horror book or story that you want more people to read. This doesn’t have to be military-related, but it would be cool if it was—and we really hope you take this opportunity to promote your own work if you have some! Don’t be bashful. It is, after all, the Veterans in Horror Spotlight.

Please note, we will not be vetting authors’ backgrounds by asking for their DD-214 (or equivalent paperwork for non-US veterans). We are working on the honor system and trust authors already know what could happen if misrepresentations are discovered by readers. A vetting exception may occur, however, if someone claims to be a former Navy SEAL, Marine Sniper, and a fighter pilot (these things happen).

Again, reach out at veterans@horror.org.
