BFS Short Story Winner Hits Kickstarter(0)
Megan says “It’s a book of fun, collaborative materials around key elements of story-building, very flexible and nothing formulaic!. Unlike most writing resources, it’s designed for groups of writers, so writers’ groups can play together and creative writing teachers can use it to supplement their teaching. All the games & activities come from a 12-week story-building course & workshops which I’ve been running since 2010. The finished book will have 50+ hours of materials (including follow-on activities) and the materials are photocopiable, so each writers’ group / writing teacher only needs to get one copy”.
As with most Kickstarter projects, the book will only go ahead if funding targets are met by a deadline, in this case May 11th!
New horror magazine seeks Kickstarter fundingComments Off
John Joseph Adams is seeking Kickstarter funding for the proposed Nightmare Magazine - “a monthly magazine of horror and dark fantasy short fiction which will be published both online and in ebook format. This Kickstarter is intended to help fund the first issue and to get the magazine off the ground.
In Nightmare‘s pages, you will find all kinds of horror fiction, from zombie stories and haunted house tales, to visceral psychological horror. No subject is off-limits, and we will be encouraging our writers to take chances with their fiction and push the envelope.
Edited by bestselling anthologist John Joseph Adams, every month Nightmare will bring you a mix of originals and reprints, and feature a variety of authors—from the bestsellers and award-winners you already know to the best new voices you haven’t heard of yet. When you read Nightmare, it is our hope that you’ll see where horror comes from, where it is now, and where it’s going.
Nightmare will also include non-fiction, fiction podcasts, and Q&As with our authors that go behind-the-scenes of their stories.”
There are new brand stories lined up for the first issue from Laird Barron, Sarah Langan, Jonathan Maberry and Genevieve Valentine.
