Women in Horror Month 2013
The Women in Horror Interview Series
I am proud to announce that my interview series on women horror writers has been approved for the 2013 Women in Horror Month seal. I am now considered a Women in Horror Month Ambassador which comes with specific responsibilities to maintain the integrity of the seal. The biggest component of this is remaining professional and represent WiHM and the underrepresented female artists with respect.
I would like to thank the Viscera Organization for this opportunity.
In order to honor Women in Horror, I will be applying the seal to and reposting interviews with Women in Horror from the past year, in addition to interviewing new women whenever possible. The proposal is below.
If you are interested in being interviewed, please see my Interviews page.

I would like to be able to apply the Women in Horror Recognition seal to the interviews with female horror writers I have already completed. Many of them are women of color, which as a whole are under represented in horror. I would repost the interviews in February with the Women in Horror seal.
Discuss how your proposal is in line with the WiHM mission:
It will recognize female authors in horror, both established and up and coming in the genre. It will recognize women of color, who are underrepresented as horror authors.

Women in Horror:
These interviews are part of the 2013 Women in Horror Interview Series. Every February, Women in Horror Recognition Month (WiHM) assists underrepresented female genre artists in gaining opportunities, exposure, and education through altruistic events, printed material, articles, interviews, and online support. WiHM seeks to expose and break down social constructs and miscommunication between female professionals while simultaneously educating the public about discrimination and how they can assist the female gender in reaching equality.
