The Greater St. Louis Chapter of Sisters in Crime is dedicated to helping every writer achieve the dream of publication. It is a place for men and women to find camaraderie and encouragement. Our main goal is to create an active, non-competitive atmosphere for writers, readers, and other lovers of the mystery genre.

Four For Forty Contest 2016 has been cancelled due to a ruling from National Sisters in Crime.

About Chapter Meetings 

Our meetings feature guest speakers who provide information on interesting topics. On those evenings where there is not a guest speaker or where the speaker finishes early, we have open readings, discussions on writing issues, networking, or a book discussion.  Past meetings have included presentations on marketing, how to conduct interviews, K-9 police, the world of indie publishing, and more.
