SinC UK/EU Chapter

Welcome to the Sisters in Crime Community!

We are Once Upon a Crime, the Sisters in Crime UK/Europe chapter.

Our mission is to promote, support and recognise the professional development of women crime writers in the United Kingdom and Europe. We welcome all genders of writers, readers and publishing professionals with an affinity for the genre. We love crime, and we love telling stories – and we’d love for you to join us!

Why Join Us?

We’re a welcoming community of writers based in the UK and the EU who regularly get together for write-ins, meetings and networking. We operate mostly online, although we do meet up in person at conferences and festivals. We’re also organising a writing retreat.

Our members range from traditionally published to indie and beginners looking to develop their craft. We support and learn from each other.

The Sisters in Crime International organisation has an incredible database of resource for writers, from skill development to publishing. There are hundreds of archived workshops, masterclasses and talks which you can access at any time.

Meeting regularly allows us to network effectively, arrange promotions, organise anthologies and brainstorm other writing and publishing opportunities.
