Local Chapters

Sisters in Crime has 50+ regional chapters in the United States and Canada. For many of our members, the networking, the learning, and the fun takes place at the chapter level.

Many chapters, though not all, have monthly meetings. Depending on size and geography, chapters may also offer online courses, sponsor booths and panels at local literary festivals, run a speakers bureau, run workshops on topics related to crime writing, publishing, and law enforcement, publish an anthology of members’s stories, have a local newsletter or blog, and sponsor regional conferences.

Chapters have a separate dues structure. In order to join a local chapter, you must also be a member of national Sisters in Crime. You can join as many chapters as you want. Many SinC members have more than one chapter memberships.
