WriteNow! Conference

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 presented by the Desert Sleuths chapter of Sisters in Crime, Inc. 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 who are interested in the writing craft, publishing, and marketing.

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.


A registration link will appear on this page closer to the date/time of the current year’s conference.
