Aspiring mystery writers in CT, DE, NJ, NY, PA and WV have two weeks left to submit an application.
The purpose of the scholarship is to inspire aspiring mystery writers by offering financial support to writers who want to take a specific class, attend a conference, or to do specific research as demonstrably necessary to a mystery work they are creating. It was named for Leon B. Burstein, an avid mystery fan, that more work in his favorite genre might be created.
The application deadline is August 3, 2016.
