First time publication and two great horror websites.

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

So, I've been coming to the writers workshop here off and on for the last four years or so and am proud to say that I've finally managed to have a short story of mine accepted (two stories in fact).

At www.microhorror.com they've published my short short entitled "Skin" listed under W.P.Johnson.

At www.snmhorrormag.com they've published the full length version of "Skin", entitled "Her Lovely Skin" for their October oddities issue (author name here William Johnson, though I told them to use W.P Johnson to avoid confusion).

I'm very proud of this, as its my first publication EVER, and I can honestly say that if it wasn't for having joined the workshop here I never would have gotten as far with my writing as I've gotten. So, for anyone doubting the workshop process, I'm proof that after banging my head against a wall for the last decade, I've finally gotten SOMETHING picked up. I'm confident that it's only the beginning.

Oh, also, support the aforementioned websites. They're free, and very cool people. Also they're great places to submit your work if you write horror.
