Two literary genres, science fiction and horror, trace their origins to Frankenstein—and it just so happens the book was written by a teenage girl! What better way to celebrate this extraordinary book than with a teen-focused festival? During this one-day extravaganza, we’ll feature readings and book signings by Hoosier authors, a maker-space (perfect for creating one’s own monster), interactive workshops for aspiring writers, a marathon screening of classic horror and sci-fi films and many other activities celebrating all things speculative and creeptastic!

The first-ever Indiana Sci-Fi & Horror Writers Festival is coming to life on October 20, 2018 at the Indiana State Library. Stay tuned for more details.
