About

The California Crime Writers Conference is an intimate weekend conference, stuffed full of craft, fellowship, and fun. It happens every two years and is a joint venture between the chapters of Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles and Mystery Writers of America/Southern California.

For 2019, we took advantage of our SoCal location to bring in screenwriters and producers. We wanted to give authors a peek behind the Tinsel Town curtain and reveal what happens when Hollywood beckons.

Our craft workshops offered two tracks, one for newer writers and a second for writers with one or more series under their belt. We also had panels on Forensics, Business, and Marketing, as well as contests, raffles, new media demos, chances to chat with agents and editors, and even an Escape Room!
