I am on the board of the Wolfe Island Scene of the Crime Festival and am just in from a board meeting. It's looking like we're going to have another fantastic year. The festival is held every August on beautiful Wolfe Island, Ontario. The Island is about a 1/2 hour ferry ride (and free!) from Kingston, Ontario. There is also a ferry running from Cape Vincent, New York. One of the features of the festival is the annual short story contest. There's less than a month left to enter, so if you are considering it, don't leave it much longer. Contest closes on June 1st. All details of the contest are up on the web page. www.sceneofthecrime.ca. You don't have to attend the festival to submit a story to the contest, but you do have to be Canadian and you do have to be unpublished.
This year's festival is on Saturday August 13th. Registration includes author readings, panel discussions, guest lecture and THREE meals including our famous church supper. Can't be beat. Www.sceneofthecrime.ca. We're on facebook, to get updates just look for Scene of the Crime and friend us.
