Happy New Year!
Lucky for us the planet did not recede into a black hole or unleash the ultimate zombie apocalypse. We may now forge ahead in our mission to facilitate the fourth annual Women in Horror Month festivities this February!
We are currently in the process of launching expanded and improved Women in Horror Month social forums as our way to consistently highlight your contributions, facilitate important discussions on women’s visibility in the horror entertainment/arts industry, and delight in all the creative connections people make online and in their communities via the festivities.
Here are a few tidbits we are excited to announce:
WiHM Official Blog
2013 brings with it our first official blog! Our blog will consistently feature both women and men in all areas of horror: art, music, literature, film crew positions like screenwriters, and so on via interviews, editorials, sponsor and ambassador spotlights, art, and beyond. Our mission is to provide as much visibility to female horror artists working under the radar and the men who support these endeavours with genuine concern and public action. Be sure to keep up with our blog and don’t hesitate to introduce yourself and tell us about your work!
WiHM Official Podcast
We are thrilled to announce that the first official WiHM Podcast will premiere on February 1st to help kick off the month. Our podcast will be hosted by Hannah “Neurotica” Forman and Ashlee Blackwell. Be sure to stay up-to-date on any of our social media pages for show information, guests you can expect to hear from, and how you can get involved.
2013 Events in Motion
We are happy to report that 2013 events are already being planned all over the world: film festivals, art shows, blog series’, podcast specials, PSA’s, and more. Be sure to stay in loop as we highlight all the exciting online and onland happenings. For some inspiration check out our previous post,

WiHM Official Website and Archive
It is important that we do not lose the records, the history, the creativity, and the contributions you have put into WiHM. One way we are building our time capsule is by continuing to update our website archive with all of your blogs, events, podcasts, interviews, PSA’s, etc. from 2010 up to the present. Each week we are updating so if you need some inspiration visit our website and watch as our content expands. Did you contribute to WiHM but not see your link represented? Let us know! We would love to archive all of your hard work.
You don’t have to wait until February to show support…
Show your support and share this with your friends to help spread the word. The more people who get involved, the more exposure underrepresented artists will have. And hey, you never know, one of your friends may see the link and decide they want to create a live bloody performance art piece. There are so many things about our friends we really don’t know ;)
