October 2017: Tell a Horror Story (and maybe hear it on SCRM Radio!)

Attention all horror writers! 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. Following up on CSN’s meeting on September 10th, 2017 — at which writers and / or actors who love horror discussed the genre and “fleshed out” their creepy concepts — the best stories arising from that meeting (or subsequent to it) will be presented at CSN’s October 8th monthly meeting.

Our special guest will be Ms. Tra Cee, owner of SCRM Radio, a 24/7 streaming internet radio station that is dedicated to all things horror. She will listen to the stories and will select a winning story that will be presented on her radio show.

Scripts must be submitted in advance to be eligible for consideration at the meeting: submissions should be sent to no later than 12 noon on Sunday, October 8th. Stories may be presented at the meeting via live reading by the writer or or pre-recorded and played at the meeting. Stories may be of any duration, up to 15 minutes; if doing a live reading, rehearse in advance to ensure you do not exceed the 15-minute limit.

[If recording is an issue, please notify Amorous Lesko at prior to next month’s October 8th event.]

Remember: on October 30th, 1938, George Orson Welles, a famous actor, writer, and director, became known for his legendary broadcast known as “The War of the Worlds”. The radio play was so convincing that audience members started calling the police, etc., for guidance, as they believed aliens from Mars had invaded Earth!

So come out on Sunday, October 8th and tell us your horrifying story — maybe you, too, will be remembered as the late and great Orson Welles is.

As always, the meeting will be held at Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro, 3905 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, IL. Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro has revised their menu, so come out and enjoy a meal, hear good stories, and get acquainted with others that share your passion. Doors open at 5:30pm for networking, drinks, and dining. The meeting will start at 6:00pm and will last until approximately 8:30pm.


Admission is $10.00 in advance (which includes all Eventbrite / PayPal processing fees) or $15.00 at the door. As always, CSN annual members receive complimentary admission. In either case, please RSVP via Eventbrite:
