Dorothy Cannell Scholarship 2018
Share |

To honor one of the most enduring author/agent partnerships in mystery publishing, Sisters in Crime is administering the Dorothy Cannell Guppy Scholarship, offered by an anonymous donor.

The $1,000 scholarship will be offered each year to an aspiring or published mystery author who is a member of the online Guppies Chapter of Sisters in Crime. Although the majority of the members start out as unpublished, many change that status by using the support and resources of the Guppies to assist them in honing their craft and finding their path to publication. The Dorothy Cannell Guppy Scholarship subsidizes attendance at the Malice Domestic conference held annually in Bethesda, Maryland.

Malice Domestic honors the traditional mystery and awards the prestigious “Agatha,” named for Agatha Christie. Attending Malice was, for Dorothy as for many other crime writers, a wonderful introduction to the community of mystery readers and writers. This scholarship will allow another new writer (published yet or not) the opportunity.

To apply, a member of the Guppy Chapter should send a statement, no more than 200 words, about how attending Malice will support her writing goals, to Sisters in Crime at admin@sistersincrime.org, RE: Dorothy Cannell Scholarship. Applicants will receive confirmation of entry via email.

All entries must be received by December 26, 2017. The winner will be selected from the entrants and announced early in 2018.

The award will be for attendance at Malice Domestic April 27-April 29, 2018.
