2020 LOHF Writers Grant

The Ladies of Horror Fiction team is excited to announce the 2nd annual LOHF Writers Grant.

Update: There will be ten grant recipients this year! Many thanks go out to Steve Stred, Laurel Hightower, Andrew Cull, Cemetary Gates Media, Sonora Taylor, S.H. Cooper, Ben Walker, and anonymous donors for their generosity.

Letter from Steve Stred

Hey all, just a quick note from me. 

Once again I want to thank the Ladies of Horror Fiction for jumping on board last year for the First LOHF Writers Grant, but then also saying yes to facilitate the Second Grant this year as well.

The group does phenomenal work year round to spotlight and showcase some truly amazing authors in the Horror world.

Last year, I had put together a release to help offset the Grant, but decided to not do one this year. All sales/proceeds from ‘The Night Crawls In’ still go towards the Grant and future Grants, but I wanted to make sure this award was not about me or any of my books.

This year, I am also extremely excited and proud to announce that there will be two LOHF Writers Grants. 

Recently, the fantastic human and amazing author, Laurel Hightower reached out and wanted to help. I mentioned how the Grant works, and she offered to match my contribution. I was humbled, shocked, amazed, stunned, all of the adjectives to know that there would be two recipients to the Grant!

If you haven’t read any of Laurel’s work, I can’t recommend it enough!

So, thank you Laurel. That was truly amazing.

In closing, good luck to everyone who enters!
