Myster Short Story Contest Island Breakfast

Myster Short Story Contest Island Breakfast

As part of the inaugural Key West Mystery Fest, the Waterfront Playhouse is excited to announce a Mystery Short Story Contest.  Entries must be submitted by May 4 and winners will be announced at an “Island Breakfast” on Sunday, May 13 at the Westin Key West Resort & Marina.

Hy Conrad (writer/producer of the hit TV series Monk and White Collar) has written a brief cliff-hanging introduction called “Check-Out Time.”  Contestants must complete the story in 500 words or less.

Prizes will awarded for Best Story, Most Creative and Best Student Entry.  Some of Key West’s most prominent mystery writers will act as judges for the contest.

No writing experience is necessary – just an active imagination and a devious mind.
