Sisters in Crime (SinC), Upper Hudson Chapter (Mavens of Mayhem) is seeking new “Sisters and Misters” to help our chapter grow. We’re seeking committee members for monthly programming and the Murderous March Writers & Readers Confab. We also seek a treasurer, which includes a surprisingly low time-commitment despite its importance, and a social media/web maven.
Enjoy the best camaraderie by participating actively.
NEXT MEETING: JUNE 15TH, Bethlehem Public Library, 10:30
Our lively chapter, one of three in NYS, includes fans and writers — women and men who enjoy meeting, learning, and engaging around the craft, business, characters and field of mystery writing.
