Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles is a chapter of the international organization Sisters in Crime. We are authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers and librarians bound by our passion for the mystery genre and our support of women who write mysteries. We welcome mystery lovers from anywhere, who share an interest in the Los Angeles mystery community. Find out more about our meetings, workshops, biennial anthologies we publish, the benefits of membership, and how you can join.
Please watch our website and your inbox for information on future chapter meetings.
The April Chapter Meeting Has Been Cancelled
As you may have guessed, our chapter meeting for April has been cancelled. We are working on developing a video option for May. Even though Safer at Home will hopefully have been lifted by then, there will be no way anyone can ramp up a meeting and space that fast. In addition, it is possible that we won’t be back to normal yet.
In the meantime, let’s stay strong and reach out to each other electronically and/or from six feet away. Check out the April Camp NaNo. Read to some kids over the phone. Oh, and if you’re a member of the L.A. chapter of Sisters in Crime, work on your short story for our next anthology, Avenging Angelenos. If you’re not a member and you’re working on a short story, please join. Just remember you must join the National organization and then join our chapter.
Thanks! Stay Safe and Be Well.
