New England Crime Bake 2020 Reimagined!

July 1, 2020

Dear Friends,

The virus may keep our bodies home (and hidden!), but our hearts and spirit are ready to mingle!

The Crime Bake committee is busy creating an online event to gather our beloved community of mystery writers, readers, instructors, authors, agents, editors, and maybe even a forensic expert or two. Although an online event can’t capture the personal warmth that is a hallmark of Crime Bake, we will continue our unbroken traditions of the Al Blanchard award presentation, an interactive panel, Flashwords and more!

The planning committee is reimaging ways to support, enrich, and connect with our community. We will offer manuscript critiques and query coaching with our agents and editors as well as celebrating our debut authors. Space is limited and pre-registration is needed for these, so please continue to follow us on social media and keep an eye out for our email notices.

Mark your calendars for November 7, 2020 at 7:00 PM ET for our 90 minute celebration of crime camaraderie!

We will miss you and are already planning seeing you next year at our 20thanniversary conference. Mark your calendars for November 12 – 14, 2021, and get ready to party!

Please send any questions to [email protected].

Stay safe. Stay healthy.
