President’s Message

Dear Writer Friends,

This month, I’m reflecting on how much talent and expertise can be found in our membership. Alice Boatwright remarked that a few years ago the chapter was represented at Left Coast Crime by a half dozen members while this year, more than twenty will speak to attendees. It says a lot about the commitment our members have made to learning their craft and persevering in the journey to publication and beyond. Details about the panels and speakers can be found on the website at www.leftcoastcrime.org/2024/.

I want to thank Cynthia Blair, Glen Erik Hamilton and Marty Wingate for their very informative panel Getting Serious About Series last month on Zoom. If you missed the panel or want to rewatch it and take notes this time (like I do!), here’s a link to the recording. (The passcode is sxy4m^xJ)

Just a reminder there is no April meeting. We currently do not have a formal plan to bring members together at Left Coast Crime. Several options were reviewed. Attendees will be notified if there is a change in developments.

One last thing before I sign off. I encourage everyone to complete the Sisters in Crime Equity Project Survey 2 that was recently sent out to the membership. This is a chance to make your opinions known to the National board who will base their decision-making on the data they collect. If you want to shape the future of SinC,  please take this opportunity to participate. Here is the link.
