Can I tell ya how darn much I love The Skelebration of Scares? I mean, go fig, it’s my baby, but jeepers it’s a fun event. Basically it’s us nerdy writer folks in the Flint area getting together for a Halloween event where we tell scary stories and dress up and just share the scares. This was our second year and we had spooky art on display from Jason Rapelje, Amanda Emery, and myself. We had Amanda doing tarot readings and photographer Sarah Reed did a scary photo booth. And then there were the story tellers, Glen Birdsall, Charles Shaver as Iffy, Chris Reed, KJ Hooten, Anne McGeathy, Marcus Bieth, and myself and we all told tales for the season. We had a great crowd, had some wonderful costumes, and a fantastic venue and it was just one of those magical nights that reminds you why you love writing and the arts. This year I wrote five stories, all of which were posted online, though two only for a day, and I got to read two of them and had a blast. I am honored to have such great people to work with. Ah, but what did it all look like?
Welcome one, and welcome all, to The Skelebration of Scares, a multi-ring circus of terror. The wind has grown chill, friends, and the time has come again for the ghouls to leave the darkness of their tombs and to roam the land once more. We invite you, neighbor, to join us in the relatively creature free Lunch Studio in downtown Flint on October 29th from 7PM – 10PM.
Oh, and what wonderful horrors do we have in store for you, neighbor. Stories told to chill your bones, photos to capture your soul, art to make the eyes bleed, music to burn your ears, and a person who can look into the future and tell you what may lay ahead.
We cannot promise that the things in the dark won’t come near, neighbor, but I can promise you that this shall be a night of scares you won’t soon forget.
This is a free event. Costumes are not required but encouraged.
*Parent discretion is advised – stories may be too intense for younger listeners.*

(this event is in downtown Flint, Michigan and is the second such event we’ve held. The first was pretty boss and featured some great stories. I am working on something new to share. Mwahahaha.)
