SinC Puget Sound


President’s Message

Dear Writer Friends,

Over the past few months, Mark, Alice, Roxanne, Cynthia and I discussed ways to best support our chapter members. Quite a few of our members are published, but many are pre-published, and while we’ve done a good job of supporting our published members at Left Coast Crime and Third Place Books events, we’d like to do more to help our pre-published ones.

So we’ve come up with a pilot program of offering our members mini-scholarships to writing classes, workshops and conferences. There are lots of resources available to help writers improve their craft or their understanding of how publishing works. We hope this program can help you achieve your writing goals.

I’d like to thank Kate Jackson and Joyce Yarrow for sharing their marketing strategies at our May event. I know for a fact they inspired some of our members to explore their suggestions.

I hope you can join us for our June event where we are hosting Leslie Budewitz, an attorney who is a long-time member of our chapter and an award-winning author. I’m looking forward to learning which common misconceptions about the law I need to rethink in my crime stories.

And finally, a reminder that there will not be a July meeting, but we hope to see you at the picnic in August!
