Aspiring writers of mysteries, cozies, suspense, thrillers and true crime are invited to submit the first 500 words and a one-page synopsis of their unpublished manuscript to the Barbara Burnett Smith Aspiring Writers Project. Aspiring Mystery Writers that are selected will each be matched with a published Mystery Author Mentor from Sisters-in-Crime for one-on-one sessions, and recognition at the Barbara Burnett Smith Aspiring Writers Event on May 16, 2010 at the West Lake Barnes and Noble.
This is not a contest – there is no judging and no fee. It is a wonderful opportunity for writers unpublished in the mystery field to get to talk with and be mentored by published authors.
Interested? Full details about the March 15, 2010 deadline and submissions can be found here.
