What we're about

We're writers, readers, and fans of all things fictionally mysterious, the Triangle chapter of Sisters in Crime, an international non-profit formed over 30 years ago to support women mystery writers. We meet monthly, 1:30 on the second Saturday at Durham South Regional Library, with great speakers on the craft, business, and subject matter of writing mysteries. Men are welcome to join our chapter. Member dues are $18/year but first you have to join SinC for $50. Other benefits include workshop discounts, social meetings, members-only field trips, networking and support for published and pre-published writers.
