The Ladies of Horror Fiction team is pleased to announce the 2020 Ladies of Horror Fiction Award for Best Poetry Collection.
A Complex Accident of Life by Jessica McHugh
“I am a vessel of dauntless courage and severe evil. My joy will endeavor, my rage possess.”
Inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Jessica McHugh’s debut poetry collection, A Complex Accident of Life, combines visual art and text to create 52 pieces of Gothic blackout poetry exploring the intense passion, enigmatic nature, and transformative pleasure of life, viewed through the kaleidoscopic lens of a female horror artist.
