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.

Holiday Gala

Hi sisters and misters!  Time to deck the halls and make merry at our Members Only holiday party.

Mary Lou Merkel has most graciously offered her home once again. Mary Lou’s decorations are so beguiling that you can’t help finding your own inner Christmas spirit. This is a time when we can relax, unwind and share our Works in Progress along with lots of good cheer, nifty presents, games and holiday goodies--a time for us to get to know each other. We’ll celebrate on our regular meeting night, Wednesday December 16, from 6:30. Bring a contribution to our pot luck and a wrapped book for our mystery swap. We’re seeking wine and any festive goodies that say ‘Tis the season. Wives, husbands or pals are welcome, too, so don’t hesitate to bring a guest.



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.

We hope to see everyone at our Upcoming 2015 meetings.  Unless otherwise noted on the website, our meetings are held
