Sisters in Crime is an organization of readers and writers. Our purpose is to combat discrimination against women in the mystery field, educate publishers and the general public as to the inequalities in the treatment of female authors, and raise the level of awareness of their contribution to the field.
Join us on Saturday, 12 April 2014, for "Verbs: Make Your Writing Powerful, Crisp, Evocative" with Fran Stewart, 2004 Georgia Author of the Year and creator of the Biscuit McKee mystery series.. Through interactive exercises, Stewart will show how to strengthen meaning and evoke powerful feeling through the skilled use of verbs.
The Biscuit McKee mystery series is about a middle-aged librarian in a small Georgia town and her faithful feline friend, Marmalade, whose intrepid curiosity helps Biscuit find clues and solve crimes. Stewart has turned out six books in this series, as well as a stand-alone mystery, a book of poetry, a bilingual childrenís book, and a book for writers. She is a member of the National League of American Pen Women, Sisters in Crime, and the Atlanta Writers Club.
