mystery-fest-logoThe secrecy, the crime, the mystery. No, this is not a headline taken from the Key West Citizen newspaper. Better than that. It’s what’s in store during the Mystery Writers Key West Fest Murder & Mayhem on August 14-16.

What began last year with a group of serious mystery aficionados converging in Key West, continues for a second year. The Murder & Mayhem gathering promises to be a well attended annual event of authors and avid mystery readers.

Literary greats have always been drawn to Key West, some for inspiration, others for solitude. Their commonality is the quality of the work created on our captivating island; tomes by Hemingway and Tennessee Williams live in our history. Contemporary writers follow suit and are showcased during this annual event. Their place in literary history will be scribed by the hands of time.

Writers will learn the techniques of crime scene investigators, hear about Key West crimes and mysteries, as well as explore writing techniques to craft the details of their story to be fascinating and believable.

Be witness to rousing panel discussions, collect signed copies of page-turner books, and be inspired by the talent and tenacity of writers whose talent is to intrigue.

It was a dark and stormy night…ooh, this is going to be good!
