Inaugural Michael Knost Wings Award

The Imaginarium Convention has announced the creation of the Michael Knost Wings Award, which focuses on “authors of speculative and/or dark fiction, specifically authors who are up-and-coming… or those who have been around a while but do not get the recognition they deserve.”

The Michael Knost Wings Award reflects the enthusiastic dedication and support of the writing community given by the person that this exciting new award is named after: Michael Knost.

Michael Knost is the 2015 recipient of the Horror Writers Association’s Silver Hammer Award for his work as the organization’s mentorship chair. Michael is also a Bram Stoker Award-winner, and is known for his mentoring, writing classes, and bestselling works.

The finalists for 2022 include Michelle Renee Lane, Donna J.W. Munro, Bridgett Nelson, Robert Ottone, and Andrew Wolter. The winner will be announced during the Imaginarium Awards Banquet on July 9, 2022 at Holiday Inn Louisville in Louisville KY.
