November 7 Zoom Meeting: Janet Hutchings

On Monday, November 7 at 7 pm, via Zoom, Janet Hutchings, editor of Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine since 1991, will talk about the magazine and how she selects crime fiction short stories that are consistently nominated each year for (and often win) the Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, Derringer, Macavity, and Thriller Awards. Stacy Woodson will host.

Janet launched EQMM’s Passport to Crime department, where stories from Europe, Asia, South America, and Africa are translated on a regular basis, while at EQMM’s Something is Going to Happen blog, she hosts a mystery guest author, critic, or scholar of the mystery genre. She also introduces monthly readings and dramatizations of stories for EQMM’s Fiction Podcast

Janet is a co-winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s Ellery Queen Award and the Malice Domestic Conventions Poirot Award. In 2003, she was honored by the Bouchercon World Mystery Convention for contributions to the field.
