The announcement is out. The mystery conference that has been going on for 13 years is coming to an end. Bloody Words, held in Toronto every even year, is coming to an end with the 2014 conference. It has traditionally been in another Canadian city in odd years. The 2012 was the first one I attended, and this year will unfortunately be the last.
It was nice to have a conference specifically for my genre. I do attend the Ontario Writers Conference every year – only missed the first one because I didn’t know about it. I might start attending CanWrite in Orillia next year to fill the void. It’s not genre specific and is very expensive, but I’ll check out the schedule each year and see what they are offering.
