🎆 Happy New Year! December winners, January 2023 prompt words and more

Happy New Year!

Thanks to everyone who helped make 2022 special! First and foremost, thanks to everyone who wrote with us at @horrorprompt and @haikuprompt. It’s a pleasure and an honor to inspire works of horror from so many creative minds. This year, @NarlenBrando and @mrremoraman, joined me as permanent co-hosts and I couldn’t be happier to have them on board. I hope you’ll join us in 2023 for our weekly #HorrorPromptAwards Twitter Spaces where we celebrate the most terrifying tweets of the week. Thanks to everyone who nominated tweets this year and helped us celebrate the horrors.

Special thanks to @Matthew_DS9, for his musical contributions, to @mrremoraman and @TheVoidGospel, for their wicked #horrorprompt mug designs and gasmask art, and to everyone else who shared #horrorprompt art with us.

The first #horrorprompt Poetry and Prose anthology was published on Halloween. Read work from the 25 contributing authors when you download your free copy today!

Congratulations to our #Mugtober merch winners and massive thanks to my Patrons and all of my supporters for making this possible.

Here’s to a terrific and inspired 2023!
