    2021 LOHF Writers Grant

    The Ladies of Horror Fiction team is excited to announce the 3rd annual LOHF Writers Grant. Update: We now have 15 grants available. Letter from Steve Stred Back in 2018, I had this crazy idea.

For those that love all things creepy, I’m excited to be able to share some of my favorite internet spooks and Alternate Reality Games with you—for all those nights where, hey, you could go to sleep, but wouldn’t terrifying yourself with internet content be so much more fun?
