The next Sisters in Crime – Canada West conference is scheduled for the weekend of November 14, 2020.

We are in the early stages of planning, so details are few. But we can tell you this:

The conference will be held at a great Vancouver venue (stay tuned for that announcement!) and will be at least one day (a Saturday), with a social event  the preceding Friday evening. Depending on demand we may extend the conference to the Sunday and offer an additional half day of programming.

The conference will be open to the public, however members in good standing of Sisters in Crime will receive a reduction in the registration fee for the conference.

Our guest speaker is Jan Burke, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. She has won the Edgar for Best Novel, and the Agatha, the Macavity, and the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine Readers Award for Best Short Story, among other honours. Her books have been published internationally and have been optioned for film and television. She is the author of over thirty short stories. Jan’s work in nonfiction includes serving as the associate editor (with Sue Grafton) for MWA’s Handbook, Writing Mysteries. Her forensic science and criminal justice columns appear in Sisters in Crime’s InSinC Quarterly. For more about Jan Burke and her books, click here.

We will keep you updated as we flesh out the details, but for now plan to be in Vancouver November 13-15, 2020!!

If you would like to help us with the planning and implementation of the conference, we’d love to hear from you!
