The Horror Writers Association (HWA), the premier organization of writers and publishers of horror and dark fantasy and home of the iconic Bram Stoker Awards®, has launched a new promotion campaign for the horror, dark fiction and occult genre – Horror Selfies. The campaign highlights the exceptional work, both literary and cinematic, produced by the horror genre.
Inspired by the popular “Say it with a Sign” meme—used by everyone from Ellen DeGeneres and Jon Bon Jovi, to David Beckham and Princes William and Harry—the HWA is utilizing the vast reach of social media to provide a platform through which people can tell the world why they love horror.
Authors and readers, actors and directors, fans and followers, are invited to submit a selfie to www.HorrorSelfies.com in which they hold a sign encouraging others to read horror/dark fantasy, to watch horror movies, or to write horror. Additionally, we are encouraging people to promote literacy and reading among children and Young Adults, or to support a local library in their Horror Selfies.
At the end of October a random selfie will be selected and the winner will get a whole swag of signed horror novels!
ANYBODY CAN POST A SELFIE. You’ll be able to see your post and easily SHARE it widely through many social media platforms
