Welcome to Southeast Mystery Writers of America!
COLUMBIA SEMWA EVENT
Sat, Jul 28, 2018
An all-day session, sponsored by SEMWA and Palmetto Sisters in Crime. SinC is sending Elaine Viets to be our headliner. Panel assignments are still to be determined. The fee for the all-day event will cover the cost of lunch. More on this as the event approaches. Put this fun event on your calendar! We’d love to have you join us in Columbia, SC.
ATLANTA SEMWA EVENT
Sat, Oct 6, 2018
We’ve reserved the Decatur Library for an event centered around the psychology of writing. Our headliners are Toni LP Kelner and her husband, Stephen Kelner, a motivational psychologist. This will also be an all-day event with lunch on site (a small fee) and a series of panels. We’re partnering with Sisters in Crime for this event.
KILLER NASHVILLE 2018
Aug 23-26, 2018
Killer Nashville is a wonderful mystery conference in our region, making it accessible to our members. Every year, Clay Stafford and American Blackguard bring us a powerhouse of authors, books, and writerly education. We have a SEMWA-only Panel on Sunday titled “Breaking Bad,” and four SEMWA authors provide a pitch-sharpening event on Thursday evening titled “Ready.Set.Pitch.”
Mar 30 – Apr 6, 2019
With a mega-successful writing retreat at the Outer Banks just concluded, your SEMWA board voted to hold another retreat there in 2019. It will be a different house because “our” house was already booked for the week we needed. Registration for this event will open to SEMWA members in November.
