Do you have a finished, but unpublished, mystery genre manuscript?
Mystery Fest Key West has announced a ‘last call’ for submissions to this year’s Whodunit Mystery Writing Competition. Deadline is Monday, April 15.
Sponsored by Absolutely Amazing eBooks, candidates wishing to compete are invited to submit the first three pages (maximum 750 words) of a finished, but unpublished manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 15. There is no fee to enter, finalists will be notified by May 1, and will have until May 10 to submit full manuscripts.
The winner will claim a book-publishing contract with Absolutely Amazing eBooks, free Mystery Fest Key West 2018 registration, airfare, hotel accommodations for two nights, meals and a Whodunit Award trophy to be presented at the 5th Annual Mystery Fest Key West, set for June 22-24 in Key West, Florida.
