Mission Statement

We Believe that Women in Horror Fiction are:


Often Lost in the Sea of Male Authors


Often Unacknowledged for Their Brilliance

Ladies of Horror Fiction was created to bring about a multi-dimensional way to support women (either cisgender or those who identify as female) who either write in the horror genre or review in it.

This will be done via the website, the podcast, the yearly Instagram Challenge, read-a-longs featuring said authors, and other activities that have not yet been determined.
