The Speakers Bureau of Sisters in Crime Los Angeles is a benefit for members of the organization that helps match authors with speaking opportunities at libraries and other community events. If you are a current member in both Sisters in Crime National, as well as Sisters in Crime Los Angeles, find out more on the Speakers Bureau page of the website.
Here’s a look back at events from 2017 and 2016 to give you an idea of what the Speakers Bureau does.

Since 1997, Sisters in Crime Los Angeles has proudly published biennial anthologies of original short stories written by members. You can find out more about them on the Anthologies page. This is a benefit of being part of Sisters in Crime/Los Angeles, and for some may be their first shot at publication. Events may include launch parties, such as the one shown here for LADIES NIGHT, the 2015 SinC/LA Anthology, held on June 27, 2015, at the Library Bar in Los Angeles!
