We are delighted to present Sisters in Crime’s 2017 Publishing Summit Report: Raising Women's Voices for Thirty Yearshighlighting the work of Sisters in Crime over the past 30 years.

We surveyed past presidents on a range of topics, and identified themes that illustrate SinC’s growth as an organization. We’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished over the past 30 years and would love your help in spreading the word.

This year's report can be found here, and the official hashtag is #SinC30.

  • This year’s Sisters in Crime Publishing Summit Report highlights the work of SinC over the past 30 years. See all that we’ve accomplished and how far we have to go:
  • In 1986, Sandra Scoppettone, a founding SinC member, reported that the New York Times Book Review had not reviewed a book by a woman in months. SinC volunteers analyzed the book reviews appearing from 1985–1987 and determined the percentage of reviews of female-authored books dropped from fifteen to six per cent. Read more:
  • “I’ve never been involved with a board which works as hard as the SinC board does.” — Cathy Pickens in the 2017 Publishing Summit. Read more:


You can also send the report to your agent, publishers, editors, and publicist, and ask them to spread the word.

We appreciate your help in spreading the word and furthering the mission of Sisters in Crime.
