HWA's chapters are a great way to meet more horror writers in your local area and get involved with local events. Our chapters organize and run events at major book festivals, horror conventions, signings and readings, and more. They host in-the-flesh meetings and also distribute online news, and we encourage all HWA members to get involved with their local chapter. See the list below to find your nearest chapter, or contact HWA's Chapter Administrator. If you don't see a chapter in your area, we encourage you to consider starting one. Please read the HWA Chapter Handbook for more information on how to set up a chapter.
