We love merging Black History and Women in Horror Month here at Graveyard Shift Sisters. For the past two February's, we have had a tremendous time demonstrating how these two recognition vehicles are a perfect marriage for scholarship and community. In 2016, we want to highlight your voice!
We're looking for four, awesome submissions for our annual It's Black History... & Women in Horror Month celebration in the form of essays about Black women in horror history from anyone as well as inspirational pieces from women of color about how horror has been influential in your personal and professional endeavors in relation to these month-long celebrations. Your pieces will be featured on Graveyard Shift Sisters all month long and continuously throughout the year.
To make the choice to submit a little easier, the best of the bunch will not go unrewarded.
One participant will have a chance to win our biggest giveaway yet, the #Blackwomeninhorror prize pack that includes the following:
Horror Noire: Blacks in American Horror Film from the 1890s to Present

Best of luck!
