Craft + Publish + Market

The WriteNow! Conference

Named the Best Writers Conference in Arizona by The Writer Magazine

What is the WriteNow! Conference?

The WriteNow! Conference is an annual 2-day conference for members of Desert Sleuths Sisters in Crime. On one day of the conference, authors, publishers, agents and/or other speakers present insights into publishing for mystery writers who wish to attend. On another day of the conference, aspiring writers can schedule one-on-one sessions with guest speakers. In previous years, this included pitching ideas to agents.

For the last two years, the conference has been hosted virtually, allowing for members and non-members across the country to attend. This year, the format for the conference has yet to be announced. The conference is open to all mystery writers.

Prices for the Conference:

The prices for the 2022 conference will be announced when the format is determined. Prices vary by format. Members of Desert Sleuths receive a discounted price from non-members.


Details for the 2022 conference are coming soon.
