Upcoming Events

Attention all horror writers, young and old alike! We have a unique opportunity for a writer and/or actor to present their short horror story to an Internet radio station that has over 15,000 audience members. Come out on Sunday, September 10th, 2017 to network with fellow writers and/or actors who love the horror genre. We will discuss this opportunity further and help "flesh out" any creepy concept ideas you may have. The more haunted the tale, the better. Audience participation is highly desired, as these are your horrific stories to tell. The best stories will be presented during the October 2017 CSN meeting to Ms. Tra Cee, owner of SCRM Radio, a 24/7 streaming internet radio station that is dedicated to all things horror.
