The Horror Writers Association (HWA) is launching a Mental Health Initiative, a “coordinated roll-out of events, resources, and activities intended to promote positive mental health, foster the concept of hope, and challenge the stigma of mental illness in the horror genre.”
The initiative will launch in June 2022. Plans include “a dedicated webpage for resources on the HWA website, publication of Of Horror and Hope, a downloadable anthology of poems, flash fiction, and personal reflections on mental health by HWA members, ‘Holistic Horrors’ a monthly column in the organization’s newsletter, several panel sessions, as well as articles and blogs published in the wider genre community.”
