Summer camp is bonfires, camp songs, and summer friendships…
Summer camp is spooky woods, monster legends, and the scary things that lurk just beyond the trail…
Or on the trail, like “Blink Fly.”
Jolene Haley is hosting
#SummerofScreams, a writer and artist showcase celebrating the darker side of summer camp. “Blink Fly” follows a camper hiking in Palo Duro Canyon, where the Texas ground cracks open. The canyon is rust red and deep.
You’ve probably met a robber fly before, maybe even jumped when it buzzed past you. They’re common and spectacular, and always hunting. Hello, gorgeous.Jolene Haley is an exceptional writer and curator of horror and other anthologies. I highly recommend “Harrowed (Woodsview Murders, #1),” her YA slasher with Brian LeTendre.
Follow the #SummerofScreams showcase for more scary summer camp stories.
