Write your ticket to the conference
Killer Nashville has been expanding each year and become one of the premiere events on the calendar for crime fiction fans. This year, organizers are offering two scholarship opportunities for writers who want to attend but may not have the financial means. Winners will receive funds towards registration, breakout sessions, writing critique sessions, and lodging. If you’re interested in either the Lisa Jackson Scholarship or Jimmy Loftin Memorial Scholarship, write a 500-word essay that describes your financial need and why you’d like to attend the conference. Anyone is eligible to enter (traditionally or independently published or unpublished). Deadlines: apply by July 1 for the Jackson award and July 31 for the Loftin award.
Killer Nashville takes place August 18-21, 2016, and is being held at the Embassy Suites Nashville South Cool Springs. This year’s Guest of Honors are Janet Evanovich and Kevin O’Brien, with other featured guests to include 2016 John Seigenthaler Recipient Robert Randisi as well as Anne Perry and William Kent Krueger. Registration is open for anyone wanting to attend.
There is a discounted conference fee for members of Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America.
