Today we are delighted to announce the launch of our new website Bumwinkers.com. We hope to become a central point on the internet for horror writers (whether they be professional or aspirational) to gel together and create some great collaborative tales.

If you have never tried your hand at writing before then this is a great place to start. You can begin by submitting small snippets of text to add to our stories or even team up with another member on our site and create a whole story between both of you. There is even a section where you can create your own micro horror story consisting of only a couple of sentences.

We will be offering feedback and publishing articles on how to become a better horror writer. In the future, we hope to reach out with published authors in this genre and hopefully get some tips and advice on how they approach their craft, and maybe invite them to join us in a story.

We want this website to be fun and to build up a great community where we can provide a helpful critique of each other's work. Any innate talent that is spotted by us will be encouraged and if you are a regular contributor to our site and valued participator then we may also help you promote your work in the future. Our ultimate goal would be to have some of our contributors discover in themselves an undiscovered ability to write great horror and for them to become published authors.

Writing is fun. Writing horror is really good fun. Writing horror fiction with others is a party.

So dive on in and join us - we don't bite - well most of us don't.
