About

The California Crime Writers Conference is a joint production of the Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles and Mystery Writers of America/So Cal Chapter, and is offered every other year.

Most times, it is an intimate weekend conference featuring the best of our local talent helping you become a better crime writer.

We made the decision early on during the pandemic to bring the 2021 conference to you virtually on June 12 rather than risk a full, in-person, conference. The advantage is that we were able to broaden our offerings of great talent, as well as locals, and we’re offering the conference for free.
