More good news for Writer Beware: the Mystery Writers of America is joining SFWA in sponsoring us.
From the official press release:
“We are pleased to be able to support the important work that Writer Beware is doing on behalf of all writers, professional and aspiring, by exposing scams aimed at defrauding authors,” said Frankie Bailey, executive vice president of the Mystery Writers of America, which is giving SFWA a financial grant of $1000 and providing other resources, such as inviting Writer Beware representatives to share their booth at BookExpo and supplying volunteers to speak at writing conferences about fraudulent publishing practices.
Needless to say, we're thrilled to add MWA's support to the incredible support and backing we've had from SFWA these past 10 years. We had a great time this year at the MWA booth at BEA, and hope to be back next year. We look forward to this wonderful new partnership--and hope that other professional writers' organizations will consider joining it as well.
Our MWA liaison, Lee Goldberg, gives the partnership a shout-out on his blog, and the news has also been picked up by PW.
