Arriving too late for anything but the reception, but I hope to see many sisters there.

Thanks for this info. It is my first B-con, and I'm traveling from Long Island, NY. I couldn't get a flight early enough to attend SinC into Great Writing. It sounds wonderful! I'll be sure to stop by the Reception. Thanks for passing along the invite!

I went to Elizabeth Lyon's workshop and it was so helpful. It was a real workshop where we did some real writing, and the food!

It was royal treatment. Thank you Sisters in Crime.
