All the writers on this panel are such an inspiration
Hello ! Sorry I'm late.
Plath is so so so resonant with horror. As with Morrison and Butler.
What a great question! Your answers are FANTASTIC!
Yes! Wuthering Heights stands with the best British Gothic. And Bunuel’s version is pretty interesting, but there’s room for a masterpiece adaptation.
Absolutely agree! The Bell Jar is littered with horror scenes in the best possible way! :D
Totally on point
And then we have… Flannery O’Connor! Deep fried extra spicy Southern Gothic!
no bly manor spoilers please!
I just finished Bly last night too!
Many people define horror writing by horror movies -- they look for jump scares and ignore creeping dread.
Yes! Sometimes the human experience is more terrifying than the monsters/ghosts/etc.
Bly is next. Still working my way through Ratched
I'm reminded of a discussion in a course when we read Octavia Butler's "Bloodchild" and after one of the students brought up how horrific the birth in that story was the professor remarked something along the lines of "Do you think that a woman giving birth couldn't be horrific?" It feels like we often sanitize the horrific aspects of women's experiences
Thank you for sharing your experience, Michelle. What you’re saying is so important!
Thank you Kathe, was trying to think of this in less binary/more queer terms, and this goes a long way there!!!
I love when different locations, like Ohio, are used in settings.
Saaame, Sara XD
Oof, that's so much
this is a great question!
that’s…very nearly not fiction
yes! HH is terrifying and that’s a beautiful collection
Started that Dystopian America book but with how life is now it was too real life. Will have to go back and look at her story.
Saras Holmes book was excellent
Sara's collections are all fantastic

Big hugs to Michelle - that's a powerful concept
Like, they go to eat at Ali Baba on Craig Street XD
Handmaid's Tale is the most horrific thing I've read over the past couple of years. Embarrassed that it took me so long.
Maryse Meijer: https://us.macmillan.com/author/marysemeijer/
I cannot WAIT to get to her newest book.
Yes, she’s amazing!
Supernatural stuff entertains but doesn't scare me but stuff that's possible like Handmaid's does.
oh my gosh, everyone read Night Sun right now!

Plenty more but here are 4 QJordan Reed 07:26 PMDo you have any advice for beginner horror writers? Formative texts or authors to read? (Besides the ones you already spoke about)Adam Lowenstein 07:37 PMFor Kathe, vis a vis her fascinating comment on power: I was rereading Bad Brains for this event, and it is remarkable how powerless Austen is for so much of the novel, how much happens to him rather than being controlled by him. What connections between horror and power do you feel your work strives for?Geneveive Newman 07:25 PMFor Michelle if there’s time: could you talk about your relationship to something like Kindred, the original and/or graphic novel?Adam Lowenstein 07:15 PMWhat do you think might be the most unexpected thing a student or researcher might learn by studying archival materials related to your own work?
on Amazon right now, haha
What was that title? Indigo?

I love Gwendolyn's submission roundup!
I love the Submission Roundup (too)!
The Paul Tremblay interview was amazing!
I’ve heard that writing, as a very personal endeavor, can cause writers to explore thoughts and feelings they hadn’t before, especially in the horror or horror adjacent genre. Has there been a time where you surprised yourself with a certain revelation or idea?
This was great! Thank you!
Thank you so much!
Thanks so much to all. Brilliant panel!
