That's it! We try to keep the cost of membership low so that all interested parties can afford to join.
Some of the events we are planning for our chapter include:
  • Seminars featuring suspense/mystery/crime-related speakers-- law enforcement
  • Forensics teams, private investigators, authors, prosecutors and defense attorneys, newspaper crime reporters, etc.
  • Other speaker topics-- how to find an agent, how to get published, craft workshops geared toward the mystery/suspense/thriller genres
  • Social get-togethers
  • Book discussions
  • Meetings where authors can read excerpts from their work
  • Trips/tours to jails, prisons, local FBI office, K-9 training school, murder trials
  • Write-Ins in inspiring locations
  • Overnight conferences and/or write-ins
  • And more—we’d love to receive your event ideas!
