Sisters in Crime reading challenge for lovers of crime fiction to read and blog about women crime writers

Sisters in Crime, a non-profit organization with the mission to “promote the professional development and the advancement of women crime writers to achieve equality in the industry” has thrown down the gauntlet for a reading challenge and one for lovers of crime fiction.

Sisters in Crime has 3,000 or so members worldwide and welcomes anyone who enjoys a good mystery. To celebrate its 25th anniversary at Bouchercon, it wants to blow the trumpet for women’s contributions to crime fiction so has thrown out this challenge:



Easy challenge: write a blog post about a work of crime fiction by a woman author; list five more women authors who you recommend.

Moderate challenge: write five blog posts about works of crime fiction by women authors. For each, mention another woman author who writes in a similar vein.

Expert challenge: write ten blog posts about works of crime fiction by women authors. For each, mention three similar women authors whose works you would recommend.

Deadline: whenever.

If you take up the challenge and are on Twitter  then you can Tweet, using the hashtag #SinC25.


Now all I've got to do is decided which level of challenge to take up.
