Oh, there’s a chill in the air kids, can you feel it? Can you hear the howls of things long dead as they waken for their feasts? Can you sense the shadows as they move in the darkness. Are you ready for a Skelebration?
The Halloween season means a lot of things to a lot of people but for me and some local writers this year’s season means another Skelebration of Scares. This is a celebration of the art and telling of scary stories. Several authors gather together to tell stories fitting for the season in the hopes of chilling some blood. Last year’s event was a great way to begin but this year we really have it in for the audience, I mean, uh, we really are bringing the fun. Along with stories we will have chilling art, terrifying tunes, a grim photobooth, and a person who can see into your future.
And it’s all free.
I have been writing stories for this event and am up to four and have a vague idea what one I want to read but am still smoothing out the rough edges. I have a couple fun stories I could read but time is doubtful. It WILL be a great place to meet me though, see or buy some art, and pick up my books. Yes, yes, yes, dear fiend. And don’t forget the other talented and scarifying authors and artists that will be on hand.
Here’s the press release –
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.*
