IT'S NO 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 AND a monthly writer's critique
group that come together before the business meeting.
Our monthly newsletter, Clued In, focuses
on the mystery field and features news, upcoming conference information, articles on writing, market updates, and more.
are encouraged to submit articles. The deadline is always the 10th of each month prior to publication month.
(example: January 10 for the February issue)
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
"The 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 newsletter. Dues are prorated to $12.50 from July
to December. All Central Jersey members must also join the National Sisters in Crime Organization.
