The team behind Hear Us Scream: The Voices of Horror are proud to announce Volume II is currently in the works. Today, the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign begins to support the project. The campaign has a goal of $8,000 USD to help fund the project, pay contributors, and publish the final piece of work.
Volume II is due to launch in October of 2022, just in time for Halloween and will retail at $20 USD.
“This volume of Hear Us Scream is going to be amazing. Volume One was an incredibly rewarding and successful publication and we were so proud of the outcome. Deciding to do a second volume was a no-brainer, we knew we had to keep the momentum going and work on a second issue. We hope to continue publishing these wonderful personal stories for many years to come” said Catherine Benstead, Founder of Hear Us Scream.
Hear Us Scream: The Voices of Horror is a collaborative effort committed to building supportive, genuine connections and safer spaces for women and/or non-binary folks in the horror community. We aim to amplify marginalized voices that have been frequently drowned out or ignored in a genre traditionally perceived as othering women and non-binary individuals. Horror is so dear to so many of us, and we believe that sharing these diverse personal stories can foster an important sense of belonging and community for those who need it most. We treasure the connections we forged and the voices we highlighted in Volume One, and we can’t wait to continue this work as we publish Volume Two. Our fantastic group of Volume Two contributors are ready to share their unique perspectives on and connections to horror, and we can’t wait for you to read them.
We are so proud to announce that this volume will contain the essays of 36 horror loving writers! A whole 10 (+1) more essays than volume one. Hear Us Scream: The Voices of Horror Volume Two will publish essays from the following:
Antonia Rachel Ward
Jolene Marie Richardson
Laura TH Riordan
