Winner of the 2009 Bram Stoker Award, Superior Achievement in Non-fiction! Also, Writers Workshop is the winner of the 2009 Black Quill Award, Editor's Choice, Best Dark Genre Book of Non-Fiction!
Congratulations. You've discovered the ultimate book for writers who earnestly want to improve their own abilities. The award-winning Writers Workshop of Horror includes an unparalleled list of teachers, all experts in their fields of endeavor. Woodland Press assembled a dream team of writers, editors and professionals for this special project. We then brought in local author Michael Knost as editor. The result is nothing short of spectacular. It focuses solely on honing the craft of writing. You won't find anything in the pages of this volume on marketing, promotions, or submission tips. That's another book for another time. What you will find is solid advice from professionals of every publishing level on how to improve your writing. Although this project is centered on writing horror and/or dark fiction, the principles and advice inside this book will transcend all genres and all forms of writing. It doesn't matter if you write romance, science fiction, western, mysteries, fantasy, or memoirs; you will richly benefit from the information, ultimately improving your craft by bringing polished elements of horror, fear, anxiety, or dread to your work when needed.

“When I’m writing, I usually have three reference books close at hand—a paperback dictionary, Strunk & White’s Elements of Style, and the Guinness Book of World Records. Now I’m adding a fourth. With his Writers Workshop of Horror, Michael Knost has put together that rarest of books—a writing guide that actually has something valuable to say about the craft of writing. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or bestseller, this book will pay back the effort you put into reading it. Highly recommended.” — Joe McKinney, author of Dead City and Quarantined
"A veritable treasure trove of information for aspiring writers.straight from the mouths of today's top horror scribes!" -- Rue Morgue Magazine
"Packing more knowledge and sound advice than four years' worth of college courses... It's focused on the root of your evil, the writing itself." -- Fangoria Magazine
"Entertaining, informative, and also plain old fun, this book will not only make you want to write more, it will give you the tools to write better. This should be mandatory reading in creative writing classes." -- Horror World
And, besides the quotes listed here, this latest edition features over thirty positive blurbs pertaining to Writers Workshop, all by noted members of the Horror Writers Association.
