Sisters in Crime Australia IncCelebrating Women's Crime Writing Since 1991

The Plot: To celebrate women's crime writing on the page and screen and bring a collective critical eye to the field.

Launched at the Feminist Book Festival in Melbourne in September 1991, Sisters in Crime in Australia was inspired by the American organisation of the same name, which was founded in 1986 by Sara Paretsky (creator of Chicago PI VI Warshawski) and other women crime writers at the Bouchercon crime convention.

The Motive: To share our collective passion for women's crime writing.

Modus Operandi

-:- To bring together women crime writers, screen-writers, producers, booksellers, publishers, lawyers, judges, police, forensic specialists, librarians, academics, and critics but in the main, readers and viewers.

-:- To discuss and analyse books, film and television shows, law and justice issues, new trends and critical issues of the crime genre.

-:- To explore the contemporary issues at the heart of much crime fiction as well as dissecting its rich history.

-:- To promote the professional development of women crime writers, especially emerging writers.

-:- To provide opportunities for networking between writers, publishers and producers and between writers and their readers and viewers.

-:- To have fun - and lots of it.
