Griffin Gartner

Griffin Gartner helps horror writers craft scarier stories. He believes that the horror genre uniquely reflects the cultural climate, and serves a life-affirming, meaning-providing role in the social fabric. The truth is that in an increasingly nihilistic society, people need stories that can help them orient themselves in the world. Griffin finds the responsibility for shocking readers back into meaning squarely upon the shoulders of horror writers. He is dedicated to improving the world by empowering these writers with effective storytelling.

Storytelling is just as useful in nonfiction. An avid policymaker, he is dedicated to weaponizing storytelling to improve governance in Minnesota and around the world.

Griffin specializes in horror fiction and academic nonfiction. He will cultivate your strengths and ensure your work makes the biggest impact possible.
