Our main goal is to create an active, non-competitive atmosphere for writers, readers, and other lovers of the mystery genre.

 SISTERS IN CRIME’S 30TH ANNIVERSARY!
A Members Only Celebration - July 26

For more than a quarter century, Sisters in Crime has been inspiring and promoting sister crime writers—and misters, too. It’s been a great ride and an impressive success. Help us celebrate with a champagne luncheon at the home of our Secretary, Claire Applewhite on Wednesday, July 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Come ready to share news of your current work in progress and to win a prize or two in another devilishly difficult diversion dreamed up by our deliciously demented president. Bring a contribution of food or drink. You’re welcome to bring a guest. Check out the menu right here.

Fedora – Champagne for a grand toast
Merkel - 30th Anniversary Celebration Cake
Chandonnet - Deviled Eggs
Kane - Salad
Bradkowski -
