Bloody Words is the Canadian Mystery Conference. Founded in 1999, the Conference is held every June in a different part of Canada, combining Mystery authors, fans & readers with mingles, a banquet, and packed full of sessions that will help you plot the perfect murder. It has never been out East before, and there's rumblings that St. John's might be the host of 2015.
The catch: Is there enough interest, and are there people willing to volunteer in a bunch of different capacities? Check out the website at bloodywords.com and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested or would like a little more information!
