The stars have aligned…again.
Join us as we explore the writing of H. P. Lovecraft and work inspired by the mythos he created. We will post one assignment per day for 13 unholy days, beginning 18 July 2011. These short projects will encompass many topics, including literary criticism, personal reflection, pop culture, and arts and crafts. This year we shall conclude our exercise on 30 July 2011 by sharing a composition inspired by an idea in Lovecraft's own commonplace book.
Think of it as a doomed expedition to an eerie land of madness and decay, an exercise in pseudo-intellectual discourse, or just day camp for your twisted inner child.
We are all doomed. Cthulhu fhtagn.
