HWA Greater Vancouver welcomes all members of every level of the Horror Writers Association (HWA) in the metropolitan area of Vancouver, British Columbia (and/or Western Canada/British Columbia while there are only two Canadian Chapters). Our vision is to create a welcoming, inclusive, and accessible professional community of authors, poets, editors, publishers, artists, filmmakers, and other creatives.

Stanley Park, Downtown Vancouver, and the Burrard Inlet

We’re dedicated to promoting dark literature and the interests of those who create it. We encourage public interest in and foster an appreciation of Horror and Dark Fantasy literature by publishing a blog and facilitating readings, workshops, interviews, resource-sharing, and networking opportunities.

While we envision in-person meetings and maybe a convention or two at some future point, due to COVID-19 chapter members are currently invited and encouraged to attend our monthly Zoom meetings. We’d love to have you join our exciting new chapter! We can be reached via our Contact page, and you can follow us on Facebook at Greater Vancouver Horror Writers Assoc. Chapter (HWA-GV).
