General Meeting Information

Enjoy fascinating speakers and learning the craft of writing mystery! Meetings include two different speakers with lunch in between.

The morning speaker might be a detective, FBI agent, US Marshal, Medical Examiner, forensic scientist, private investigator, psychologist, corrections officer, attorney. These are fascinating talks, and useful for mystery writers. The afternoon workshop involves advice or practice in the craft of writing or in publishing. The meetings are an opportunity to hang out with interesting people, have fun, and learn from other writers.  Meetings are open to everyone.
