The Greater St. Louis Chapter of Sisters in Crime is dedicated to helping every writer achieve the dream of publication. It is a place for men and women to find camaraderie and encouragement. Our main goal is to create an active, non-competitive atmosphere for writers, readers, and other lovers of the mystery genre.

Four For Forty Contest 2016 has been cancelled due to a ruling from National Sisters in Crime.

Greater St. Louis Sisters in Crime will hold no regular meeting in August, but sisters will be hard at work promoting charity and community. We invite you to see us at these two excellent community events--a benefit for breast cancer survivors on August 14 and Celebrate Wildwood on August 27.



Thanks to all who made this benefit a great success!


Saturday, August 27, 2016
from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

About Chapter Meetings 

Our meetings feature guest speakers who provide information on interesting topics. On those evenings where there is not a guest speaker or where the speaker finishes early, we have open readings, discussions on writing issues, networking, or a book discussion.  Past meetings have included presentations on marketing, how to conduct interviews, K-9 police, the world of indie publishing, and more.

We hope to see everyone at our Upcoming 2016 meetings.  Unless otherwise noted on the website, our meetings are held

The third Wednesday of every month except August, starting at 6:45pm
