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.
