MWA Florida Chapter & More

I’m looking forward to talking short stories with the Florida Chapter of Mystery Writers of America—building in part on my essay for the new MWA Handbook How to Write a Mystery! The event is Saturday, June 19, at noon EDT (beginning with a half-hour of socializing first before the presentation).

While this is the big live event coming up this week, I’ll actually be recording two other events over the next 10 days—programs for the upcoming More Than Malice conference. First, Kristopher Zgorski of BOLO Books is hosting this year’s finalists for the Agatha Award for Best Short Story: Barb Goffman, Shawn Reilly Simmons, Gabriel Valjan, James W. Ziskin, and me. And then early next week, I’ll be moderating a panel on short story collections with Lawrence Block, Dana Cameron, Nikki Dolson, Gale Massey, and Sara Parestsky—such a fine line-up there!

Those recordings will be available closer to Malice, which takes place July 14-17. Stay tuned for announcements about those—but do go ahead and sign up for Malice now!
