Stephanie M. Wytovich:
One of the Writers on Writing @ Riley’s

May 22nd, 2014

StephanieJust returned from the World Horror Convention in Portland, where her critically acclaimed book Hysteria was a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award, Stephanie M. Wytovich will be bringing her distinctive blend of madness and the macabre to this month’s story night at Riley’s Pour House.

Followers of this blog may recall Stephanie’s guest appearance here last July, where she proved her scop chops by sharing her “Poem to Poetry” — a taste of the quality we might expect when she takes the stage next week at Writers on Writers @ Riley’s.

The 21st Century Scop - HysteriaStephanie currently serves as Poetry Editor for Raw Dog Screaming Press and book reviewer for Nameless Magazine, which bills itself at the biannual journal of the macabre, esoteric, and intellectual — words that (in the best sense) describe both Stephanie and her work.

She is also a member of the Science Fiction Poetry Association and a graduate of Seton Hill University’s MFA program for Writing Popular Fiction — one of the groups that will be featured at this month’s event.

MourningJewelryCover (1)Most of all, she is an amazing writer, whose work (in the words of one reviewer) “haunts readers with gut-wrenching stories and tight imagery of everything horrific.”  

Her Bram Stoker nominated poetry collection, Hysteria, can be found alongside her latest poetry collection Mourning Jewelry at Raw Dog Screaming Press. Stephanie herself can be found Tuesday, May 27, at Writers on Writing @ Riley’s.
