“We’ve always taken genre poetry seriously at RDSP and over the years readers have really responded to our poets. We want to keep pushing dark poetry out of the shadows and hope to inspire more verse from the dark side,” says managing editor Jennifer Barnes.
This book joins the branded RDSP Writing in the Dark series which includes 2020’s Bram Stoker Award Winner Writing in the Dark horror craft book by Waggoner, as well as his upcoming 2022 companion workbook. Additionally, they host Writing in the Dark webinars and seminars, which offer many workshops and information from various authors and writers, through AllAccessCon.
