Obviously, we are over the moon to welcome 2019 Guests of Honor Tess Gerritsen and Catriona McPherson. But there are other exciting things happening as well.

The California Crime Writers Conference is an intimate weekend conference, stuffed full of craft, fellowship, and fun. This year in particular, we are taking advantage of our SoCal location to bring in screenwriters and producers. We want to give authors a peek behind the Tinsel Town curtain and reveal what happens when Hollywood beckons.

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