Bloody Hell: TWO Firey, Flamey Events in November

We’re gearing up for the Wordstock Book Festival in Portland with two terrific events. If you’re in town, we’d love to see you there!

First up, join us for rowdy LitCrawl antics at the Ace Hotel on Friday, November 10th with our celebrity slam-prov sessions.

After Wordstock on Saturday, November 11th (we’ll be sharing a table with pals from Write Bloody Publishing so please stop by to say hello), we’re co-hosting a terrific reading and book release party at The Waypost. No finer way to kick off your Saturday night.

Eager to share our authors’ finest with you, and hear about your fall inspirations, too, so show up, fine people!

 

Forged in the Night Fires of Hell & Related Literary Antics

We’ve already had a busy fall with readings and launchings and retreatings with all sorts of amazing people! Next up: LitCrawl on November 4th. Get all the event deets right here. Teaser: Come listen to our very own A.M. O’Malley, John Barrios, and Leah Noble Davidson. We’ve also teamed up with Anvil Press authors Kim Fu and Chris Gudgeon, and Write Bloody‘s Derrick Brown. Muses from Bergerette will add that special spark to our evening.

Next up: A fab and fine UHell Press showcase on November 5th at Mother Foucault‘s. Brian S Ellis, Leah, Derrick, and other lit celebs will be reading from new work. Added bonus: Cult of Orpheus offers up fresh pentameter with tasty quavers from their latest work Songs from Time-wise Animals. (Exactly.)

If you’re in town for Wordstock (hell, we know you’re just in town, livin’ your lives), please join us the weekend before the world changes. We’d love to hear about what gets you hot!

Our managing editor Eve is hosting a terrific panel – Women on the Verge – Authentic Voices from Outsider Lit – on Friday, April 1 with four of your new fave writers. We’ll also be co-hosting two rad author showcases that you won’t want to miss – the first on Wednesday, March 30 with our team and special guests from Moved By Words and Bergerette, and the second on Thursday, March 31 with three UHell writers and the exceptional crew from Punk Hostage Press.

Letter from Hell 2015

Hello Hellions!

We’ll keep this brief.

First, we are suspending unsolicited submission windows until January 2017 because we currently have FIFTEEN books in our production queue and we need to focus our attention on their completion.

Second, we know you were looking forward to our summer submissions window, so, in the meantime, we are offering our first-ever University of Hell Press sponsored anthology. Details HERE. You have to contribute.

Third, we hope you’ll celebrate with us the fact that we have fifteen new books coming because that number also matches the number of books in our entire catalog so far. We put out five books the year we launched in 2012, four in 2013, three in 2014, and already three so far this year. Color us gobsmacked.

Finally, we hope that if you’re in Portland that you’ll join us at LitHop PDX this year where we’re hosting a stage at Dante’s. Details HERE.

Dispatch over.

Yours in Hell,

University of Hell Press
