Sisters in Crime is extending the member discount for SinC members attending the Writers' Police Academy taking place Sept. 23 to 25, 2011, near Greensboro, North Carolina.
The offer, originally scheduled to end on June 16, was extended due to its popularity. SinC members are now eligible for the deeply-discounted registration fee of $100 throughout the entire registration period of the conference. SinC national will pay the balance of the $255 registration.
If you’re not a Sisters in Crime member, you can sign up for a SinC membership to receive the discount. The annual membership fee for a SinC professional membership is $40. For more information on membership, go to www.sistersincrime.org.
The Writers' Police Academy provides a hands-on interactive experience designed to help writers increase their understanding of all aspects of law enforcement and forensics.
The three-day training program offers access to active-duty police instructors, an on-site working fire station and working police, fire and EMS equipment.
Sisters in Crime will sponsor a mix-and-mingle reception on Friday, Sept. 24, from 7 to 9 p.m. The get-together will be followed by a “night owl” presentation by Lee Lofland, author of Police Procedure and Investigation, a bestseller in the Writers Digest “Howdunit” series.
