2014 Halloween Poetry Reading
edited by Stephanie Wytovich

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:

“Whatever you do…don’t fall asleep.”
—Nancy, A Nightmare on Elm Street

October is right around the corner, which means that my favorite time of year is lying in wake. Halloween is the holiday that marries fact to fiction, mystery to horror, and both myself, and the Science Fiction Poetry Association invite you to play with us on this most auspicious night.

I’m looking for artwork and poetry for our Halloween page that both terrifies and torments the mind. I want to see the horror that scares someone so bad that they fear for their life the moment they close their eyes. Think insomnia, nightmares, and dreamscapes. Sleep paralysis, narcolepsy, and sleepwalking. I want to see the evil that lurks inside your head, the monsters that keep you awake, that keep your subconscious screaming and begging for help.

Send a 100-word bio with a brief explanation of your submission, and a .jpeg of your artwork and/or an mp3 of your poem to wyt3319@gmail.com by October 1 if possible. Work will be added during October.

I look forward to meeting your demons.

Stay Scared,
Stephanie Wytovich
