I’m so pleased to announce that, at long last, the Internet chapter of Sisters in Crime is back!
We’ve “hung out our banner and opened our doors,” so to speak. Now we’re hoping that you’ll come in for a visit - and join us! The chapter can be found online at www.sinc-ic.org.
And, in case you’re wondering just what an Internet chapter is - and why you’d want to join, here are a few answers:
An Internet chapter is much like your local chapter, except that it exists in cyberspace and provides a common meeting place for those who live where there are no local chapters, for those who are unable to attend local chapter meetings for any reason - or simply for those who want or need a “SinC supplement” in between their monthly chapter get-togethers.
The great thing about the Internet chapter is that it is accessible at any time and from any location - from your home late at night, from your office during a break or from anywhere you travel. We’re here for you 24/7.
We provide information, links to resources, blogs, monthly writing tips and prompts, support and cyber-camaraderie.
Our “members only” site will be launched next week and will include a critique group opportunity and interviews. (We’d love to find new interviewees, by the way! Don’t hesitate to sign up!)
Any questions? Contact Nan Harrington at nan.harrington[at]gmail.com.
Come on in! We’re open for business!
