Seeking Horror Monologues by Women, for Women

Women in Horror Recognition Month (WiHM) assists underrepresented female genre artists in gaining opportunities, exposure, and education through altruistic events, printed material, articles, interviews, and online support. WiHM is a service provided by the Viscera Organization, a 501(c)3 non profit organization expanding opportunities for contemporary female genre filmmakers and artists by raising awareness about the changing roles for women in the film industry.

This February, La Petite Morgue will present an evening of Horror Monologues, written by female playwrights, to be performed by female actors. We are currently accepting submissions, which can be excerpts from existing works, or separate horror works written specifically for this event.

Send your monologues to: - before December 1, 2012.

We are particularly interested in monologues that are active (rather than passive story-telling narratives). And while women being terrorized can make for fascinating monologues, we are far more interested in women who stand up to their tormentors - or who are doing the terrorizing themselves. At this time, there is no firm length requirement, but we would prefer pieces that are no more than 3,000 words. 

If there are any men reading this, we are still interested in reading your work, so please submit it - we'll be happy to consider it for our monthly Fresh Blood reading series, or for future events. Feel free to read our general submission guidelines for more information.
