Welcome to our vibrant writing community! 


Our goal is to bring the Western Canadian Sisters in Crime community of authors, librarians, booksellers and readers together. We’re working hard to bring both in-person and virtual events that will help connect our community, no matter how remote your location. In months to come, we’ll be offering writing challenges, workshops, retreats and guest speakers.

This website is our hub and here you’ll find announcements about upcoming events, information on member books, our Speakers Bureau and much more. You’ll also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Our mission is to promote the ongoing advancement, recognition and professional development of women crime writers. Membership in the international Sisters in Crime organization is the only prerequisite to joining our local Canada West chapter, and we welcome women and men, authors and book lovers equally.
