Horror lives independent of gender, race, sexual orientation, or religious belief. While efforts have been made to elevate the importance of inclusiveness, are we as a group doing enough to promote and advocate for inclusiveness, not only in our writing, but among ourselves? Bram Stoker Award® winning author and Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Linda Addison moderates a discussion of inclusiveness with Guests of Honor Kaaron Warren Gabino Iglesias, Stephanie Wytovich, Norman Prentiss,  and John Edward Lawson. The session will include a question and answer period.
