Can’t wait for August to get wickedly Weird with The Outer Dark? Needing something new to spark your imagination in the coming days, weeks, months? Tired of being a shut-in with nothing to do, nowhere to go? I figured, why not provide you all with an awesome list of writers and their stories and artists to catch up on while we all play our part in being responsible social distance-rs. I will be posting lists daily (or more, depending on time) of creative endeavors that you can access by or put out by The Outer Dark Symposium on the Greater Weird 2020 guests, hosts, attendees and volunteers (and where to find them). Enjoy!
