Talks and events
to inform and support

We chose talks this year with the goal of doing what Sisters in Crime is known for: promoting our authors' careers.
Our meetings are mostly online for now, but we're easing into some in-person meetings. We're all looking foward to that!
Meanwhile, you can join our meeetings from anywhere. A nice benefit of this difficult time--enjoying offerings from many other Sisters in Crime chapters nationwide.

This year's meetings

All meetings are 10:30-noon PT, unless specified otherwise

July 15
Revise your Writing - STAT!

Getting your first draft down can feel exhilarating, but moving on to the revision stage can feel tedious and completely overwhelming.

An award-winning editor, "The Book Doctor" Bobbie Christmas has more than thirty years of experience diagnosing and fixing developmental problems. She's edited more than a thousand books and will talk to us about the best way to approach revisions, including ways to use your computer to help.
