All of us are actively involved in the writing and reading communities. We’re members of groups like Sisters in Crime (aka SinC) and Mystery Writers of America (aka MWA). These organizations offer fantastic opportunities to both writers and fans of crime fiction at national and local levels. A lot of conferences we all know and love are sponsored in part by these organizations. Those that come immediately to mind are California Crime Writers Conference, New England Crime Bake, Left Coast Crime, Mystery Writers Conference, and Bouchercon.
Even if you can’t attend a conference, local/regional SinC and MWA meetings and events are often open to the public. Here are some of the folks I follow on social media for news of readings, mixers, and to get hyped for conferences:
Sisters in Crime National
Mystery Writers of America National
Lori Rader-Day, President of SinC National and one of my heroes
Meg Gardiner, President of MWA National and one of my heroes
SinCNorcal and as many regional chapters as I can find
MWANorcal and as many regional chapters as I can find

And all of the Miss Demeanors, of course 🙂
