#writetip As a member of the Crime Writers of Canada, I am entitled to participate in the mentorship program. Garry Ryan, president of the Crime Writers of Canada and Author of the Detective Lane Mysteries, was my mentor.
Garry is the Winner of a 2007 LAMBDA Award and the Calgary Freedom of Expression Award 2009.
So how lucky was I feeling, when the CWC notified me that Garry would be working with me on my manuscript. Garry provided me with broad scoped and detailed feedback. He told me where I was doing things well and where I needed to work on things. He called it tweaking. I’ve saved all of his comments and will use them on future manuscripts.
If you write crime stories and are trying to get published, the CWC offers a way to get your manuscript ready.
Thank you , Garry!
