Michael David Wilson

Hey All!

I’m Michael David Wilson, the founder of the popular UK horror website, podcast, and small press, This Is Horror. I’m a professional writer, editor, and podcaster, and have worked for companies such as 2000 AD, Terrorizer, and Broken River Books. My novella, The Girl in the Video was published via Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing on 28 April 2020 and This Is Horror published my collaborative novel, They’re Watching with Bob Pastorella in October 2020. My work has appeared in various publications including The NoSleep PodcastDark Moon Digest, LitReactor, Hawk & Cleaver’s The Other Stories, and Scream.  I’m also a professional ESL Teacher and graduate of the University of Warwick’s English Literature and Creative Writing Programme. You can connect with me on Twitter @thisishorror or if images are more your thing, hit me up on Instagram @thisishorrorpodcast.

But this website isn’t just about me. It’s about you, and in many ways it’s an extension of what I’m trying to do with the This Is Horror Podcast and my LitReactor columns. I want to provide you with writing tips, quotes, and inspiration in addition to personal insight into the life and journey of a creative via the blog. Let me know what you want to see on this website. Drop me a line—michael@thisishorror.co.uk—and let me know what’s working for you but perhaps more importantly what isn’t working and what you’d like to see more of.

Look after yourselves, be good to one another, read horror, keep on writing, and have a great great day!
