Selective Focus: Twin Ports Terror

If you’re into spooky stuff, horror, or Halloween, you may be interested in a new project, Twin Ports Terror: A Haunted Duluth publication. It may seem a bit out of season as Spring approaches, but organizer Brooke Zarn fills in the details, and explains that they’re hoping to gather written and visual material before Halloween.

What is it?
Twin Ports Terror is an effort by the curators of the Haunted Duluth website (Matt Rasmussen, Sean Zarn and Brooke Zarn) to provide a platform for local writers and artists to share their stories, poems, artwork and photography within the horror genre. These items will be published on the Haunted Duluth website starting on Half-Halloween (the end of April), and continuing on as the Halloween season approaches. We’ll also look to host some story-telling events and perhaps publish a printed zine if there’s enough interest.

Who can submit?
Our goal is to include mostly works by people in the Twin Ports and surrounding areas, though we are currently also accepting submissions from people in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. We may even extend our range depending on how many submissions we get. We are also considering doing separate sections for kids and adults. We are open to all styles, lengths, sizes and types of writing and art.
