Cops, Crooks, & CSI: Writing Your Cop Scenes With Authority
A one-day Mystery Writers of America NorCal workshop with Lee Lofland & friends
Lafayette Public Library
A free ticketed event, open to the public. Free tickets are available here.
Readers are more knowledgeable about cops than ever before. They expect at least that same level of knowledge from their favorite authors. So, like it or not, it’s time go that extra mile—and you can begin by strapping on your gun belts and body armor, polishing your badges and shoes, because you’re about to take a wild (and fun!) ride into a side of law enforcement not normally seen by the average citizen. Please join me in signing 10-41: On-duty!
Our press release is here (PDF).
Mystery Week returns! We’re in the early planning stages here, but we’re putting together a week of mystery events across the Chapter area. The success of this will depend on you, so please let us know if you’d like to get involved.
Holiday Meet-and-Greet with Sisters in Crime
Borderlands Books, 866 Valencia St, San Francisco
Networking and nibbles, with our criminous sisters (and brothers.) Come, and bring an appetite!

The Self-Published Writer: an all-day workshop
From research to cover art and promotion, the Indie writer runs a one-person business. But MWA welcomes Indies, and we’re running our first one-day academy that covers the nuts and bolts to get your writing career moving—even if you’ve already been traditionally published.
Details to come.
