Next week (running April 27th t0 30th), Blumhouse.com will be attending Stoker Con, a massive convention entirely geared towards horror literature. Hosted by the Horror Writers Association, Stoker Con connects renowned horror writers and publishers with up-and-coming authors, as well as those just venturing into the spooky craft. The convention offers everything from pitch sessions to panels to a “Horror University” where established and respected horror writers like Jonathan Mayberry and Jack Ketchum teach others about how to survive and thrive in the writing industry. This year’s convention is taking place on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA. For more information on the convention and to purchase passes, head to their website here.
