Oddities and Curiosities Expo

Last month I got an infusion of creative inspiration at the Oddities and Curiosities Expo during it’s Charlotte stop. It was well worth it to pay a little extra for a VIP pass for early entry, and have some time to quietly browse all of the artists and vendors before the crowds. I only took some far away shots of the booths, and it’s generally considered a faux pas to take a close up of an artists work. There is one close up of everything I bought of course.

The whole event was a nice reminder that there is a place for art of all kinds. I find myself getting a little discouraged during the submissions process when I see so many publications that don’t accept genre work, particularly horror (my favorite to write!) I just have to keep pushing forward, the right home for my work is out there somewhere!

  1. It looks like they had a lot of great stuff. Also, keep pushing forward! I like what you do so it would be disappointing if you stopped.

  2. Looks like a lot of fun! As for submitting your horror for publication, are you on Twitter? The literary community is pretty active there–and I know horror writers like Gabino Iglesias (I’d say he straddles literary and horror) oftentimes discuss possible places for their genre writing. Might be worth checking it out?
