This year’s Left Coast Crime convention is only just beginning today in Sacramento, California. It’s scheduled to run through this coming Sunday, April 1. I’m already sorry not to be participating.
Already, though, some people are looking forward to similar conventions later during the year. Oline Cogdill, for instance, has dropped a mention onto the Mystery Scene Web site about the fourth International Mystery Writers’ Festival, set to take place in Owensboro, Kentucky, from June 14 to 17. “Unlike the vast number of mystery fiction conferences this is indeed a festival,” she writes. “The International Mystery Writers’ Festival takes a unique approach by including authors and TV writers and producers as well as playwrights.” Learn more about the IMWF here.
