PortConMaine is proud to welcome the New England Horror Writers as a guest group of authors for 2015!
Founded in 2001, New England Horror Writers (NEHW) provides peer support and networking, with a relaxed and social mindset, for authors of horror and dark fantasy in the New England area. NEHW focuses on forming new friendships and supporting each other's writing goals, as well as promoting the writing of New England authors.
NEHW is primarily a writer's organization, focusing on horror and dark fiction writers in all mediums—novels, short stories, screenplays, poetry, etc.—in the New England area. We are also open to professional editors, illustrators, agents and publishers of horror and dark fiction in the region.
NEHW activities include book signings and group panel discussions at conventions, as well as purely social gatherings. With members ranging from Maine to Connecticut, NEHW events take place in varying locations, making it easier for different members to meet with each other.
They started off as a regional chapter of the HWA and then went on their own path.

PortConMaine is proud to welcome back Games by Playdate as a guest game publisher for 2015!
Games by Play Date is a Manchester, NH centered game design company. Their aim is to produce board games and card games through rapid prototyping and an open source development model. Their journey from idea to business and from game concept to delivery is, often literally, an open book. Regular board meetings are held and broadcast online. Their design documents are open to the public and the audience is encouraged to communicate their ideas, concerns and criticisms to them. They feel that dialogue, quick revisions and aggressive playtesting will develop far better games than any length of armchair designing can accomplish. Games by Play Date’s founders are Glenn Given, Meghan McGinley and Daniel Brian.
The application form for PortConMaine's Artists' Alley will be available on February 1st! Click Here for more information!
