If you’ve penned (er, typed) a mystery and are unpublished in the genre, check out the 2011 Tony Hillerman Mystery Novel Competition over at Wordharvest. It’s sponsored by the Tony HIllerman Writers Conference and St. Martin’s Press. Manuscripts have to be at least 60,000 words, and the story set in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Southern California or Utah. Entries must be received by June 1, 2011, so there’s still time!
If short stories are more your thing, Wordharvest is sponsoring the Hillerman Short Story Contest with New Mexico Magazine. The deadline is August 1, 2011. Click on the link for all the details.
