We are a Canadian chapter of the Sisters in Crime organization, an international writing community of more than 3,600 worldwide members. Our mission is to promote the ongoing advancement, recognition and professional development of women crime writers. Our goal is to bring the Western Canadian community of authors, librarians, booksellers and readers together.
Although our focus is on women crime writers, we welcome all writers and book lovers. We support and encourage writers at every stage of their career.
Chapter members benefit from writing challenges, workshops, retreats, guest speakers and member discounts.
We are working to create a vibrant presence in Western Canada — please consider joining us!
