Sisters in Crime Australia will celebrate the 25th anniversary with our third women’s crime writing Convention.
The scene of the crime for SheKilda 3 –our one-day (and a bit) crime spree will be St Kilda Town Hall.
Our motive is to celebrate women’s crime writing on the page and screen so criminal proceedings will involve more than 40 leading novelists, true-crime writers, screenwriters, producers, publishers, lawyers and scholars.
SheKilda3 will include writing workshops, author panels, book launches, publisher pitching sessions, and the great Dames versus Dicks debate.
The convention will end in spectacular fashion with the presentation of the 23rd Annual Scarlet Stiletto Awards – which includes the once-in-a-quarter-century awarding of a Silver Stiletto.
Sisters in Crime Australia would like to thank our exceptionally generous members who donated money, through our Criminal Consorts initiative, to help make SheKilda3 happen.
Sisters in Crime is a volunteer-run organisation. We operate on membership fees and the funds raised through the many events we host during the year for our readers, aspiring writers and the many fabulous published Australian women authors we support.
Some of our now-official Criminal Consorts include members and supporters who, though unable to attend SheKilda3, still wanted to help ensure its success.
Thank you to our Criminal Consorts: Vivienne Colmer, Ann Byrne, Maggie Baron, Editors Victoria, Ann Turner, Ayala Deasey, Annie Hauxwell, Claire Hill, Anne Holmes, Vicki Skidmore, Aoife Clifford, Tony Berry, Jaz Stutley, Mirna Cicioni, Suzanne Bozorth-Baines and Caroline de Costa.
You will also be getting a Dishonourable Mention in the official SheKilda3 program.
