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 benefit of this difficult time--enjoying offerings from many other Sisters in Crime chapters nationwide.

Upcoming meetings

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

How to Engage Readers through Social Media
February 17, 2024

Cozy mystery author Ellie Alexander uses creative and engaging social media strategies to connect with readers. She hosts a regular evening chat via social media, which has built a loyal community of readers. Last fall she used social media strategies to put on an interactive mystery weekend for readers and authors in Ashland, Oregon, the setting for her popular Bakeshop mystery series. She's done these things while building her brand online and writing two long-running series.

Come hear Ellie share ideas for how to use social media to make reader connections, without sacrificing what you love to do—write!
