BUILD YOUR CAREER IN A YEAR
The primary objective of the Sisters in Crime Grand Canyon Writers is emphasized in the chapter’s slogan: “Write ~ Publish ~ Sell”. We’re dedicated to helping our members achieve those three goals and develop their careers as published authors, to reach the highest possible levels of success.
In keeping with that commitment, we introduce the “Build Your Career in a Year” program to assist all chapter members with the necessary “building blocks” to either enhance their current careers as published authors, or to put the necessary “bricks” in place to begin a career as an author.
With an emphasis on craft, and marketing and promotions, our chapter presents outstanding Special Events, our signature Fireside Chats series and the following exceptional programs during our monthly chapter meetings.

The Secret to Writing Great Dialogue
Susan Pohlman, Award-Winning Author, Editor and Writing Coach
Great dialogue captures the reader’s attention and holds it. It must be dynamic, realistic and reflect the character speaking. Join Susan when she shares how to illuminate characters and bring them to life through dialogue, and how to avoid the pitfalls that weaken the story. Effective dialogue controls pacing and moves the plot forward. Character voice is key to unforgettable protagonists, villains and secondary personalities—and must be fully developed. Learn the secret to writing dialogue that rings true, transfixes the reader and enhances the entire story. An Exceptional Workshop!
