Our Story

Launched in January 2021 as a horror podcast and passion project by E.L. King, Slay Away has grown as it's built roots within the horror community. Slay Away is a Queer-operated independent horror outlet. The podcast has been a labor of love and provided opportunities for growth for our contributors.


The goal of Slay Away is to give voices to a community longing to be heard, especially voices that have been marginalized in the community and horror media. Slay Away believes that horror is for everyone.

We are actively seeking contributors to write features for Slay Away. Please see our open jobs or pitch your horror essays, news, reviews, and editorials to us if you're interested.
