MYSTERY! We cordially invite you to join the group of mystery enthusiasts that make up the Sisters in Crime-Central Jersey
Chapter. We consist of writers and readers united by the vision of achieving Sisters in Crime's purpose by providing
programs, newsletters, and support for members in New Jersey.
Our monthly meetings start with a short business meeting for all members, followed by a program focusing
on an area of interest in the mystery field. We’ve hosted multi-published, award-winning mystery and suspense authors,
weapons experts, and police detectives. In addition we have a monthy reader's group that meets before the meeting AND
a monthly writer's critique group that gets together after the speaker/program. Contact us for details.
Our monthly newsletter, Clued In, focuses on the
mystery field and features news, upcoming conference information, articles on writing, market updates, and more.
New writers are encouraged to submit articles. The
deadline is always one week after the monthly meeting.
We also run field trips and have
visited the Monmouth County Correctional Center and the State Police Museum. We have also taken trips to the past -- the Lindbergh
Trial Re-enactment in Flemington and the Hall-Mills Trial Re-enactment in Somerville.
purpose of Sisters in Crime is 'to combat discrimination against women in the mystery field, educate publishers and the general
public as to the inequities in the treatment of female authors, raise the level of awareness of their contribution to the
field, and promote the professional advancement of women who write mysteries.'"
Membership dues are payable in January and cost $25 with an email or
snail mail newsletter. Dues are prorated to $12.50 from July to December. All Central Jersey members must also join the National Sisters in Crime Organization.
