You're invited to a Workshop and Gala Luncheon to Celebrate National Sisters in Crime's 30th Anniversary (#SinC30)

With special guests, including many of the New England chapter's founding mothers and past presidents.

The morning features a fun workshop with our SinC speakers' bureau guest, Nancy Martin. Food and festivities follow.

Nancy Martin has been writing for over thirty years and has published fifty novels in four genres. She has served on the national board of Sisters in Crime where she served on the annual study of the publishing industry.

Find her online at or on Facebook

The morning workshop

Let's Make a (Publishing) Deal: A game show approach to understanding how the publishing process works--from pitch to publication. Learn how to pick out the best selling points of your book and craft it into a winning pitch that will guide agents and editors in positioning your book for the marketplace. We'll practice techniques to best communicate your book to professionals--all of whom really want you to become their new bestselling author. Come prepared to think on your feet and play a role in the show. Public speaking experience is not needed, but clear thinking about your writing is vital. Come with a 250-word summary of your book. And a 150-word summary, too.

Whether or not you plan to pitch your work at an upcoming conference or via a query letter, perfecting a short, entertaining summary of your work-in-progress is always a good strategy. You never know when you might find yourself in an elevator with the agent of your dreams.
