The HWA is an international networking and support organization for authors of horror fiction, and HWA-NY gathers local members in the New York area. If you’re a writer of dark fiction looking to meet up with others working in the same genre, please drop us a line or feel free to drop by one of our meetings to check things out. All HWA members in good standing are welcome to attend any chapter meeting or event.
The HWA-NY produces several nights of horror readings each year and represents the HWA at local events such as the New York Comic Con.
Our members include writers of short fiction, novels, young adult novels, screenplays, dark fantasy, non-fiction, comics and graphic novels, publishers, editors, graphic artists, and more, all working in the horror genre.
News and announcements from local HWA members will be posted to this site regularly. You can learn more about some of our members on the Members page, or read some fiction samples, interviews, and articles on the Stories and Articles page. View photos from some of our past events on the Events page.
We ‘re always on the lookout for new writers and readers, and we only bite… at night!
