Sisters in Crime DM meetings

In reply to my query about local writers’ groups, I received an e-mail from a writing friend that there is an effort to start a Des Moines Chapter of Sisters in Crime. SIC is a national mystery writers’ organization that promotes women writers, but is also open to men. In fact, a number of well-known male mystery writers are members of SIC.

Anyway, the group meets the third Saturday of each month at Smokey Row Coffee House from 3 to 5 p.m. Smokey Row is located at 1910 Cottage Grove; it is right at the corner of Cottage Grove and Martin Luther King Blvd.


  1. Mike, this isn't an attempt, we are the local chapter.

  2. Thank you for the correction.

  3. Mike - Thanks for the mention of the new Sisters in Crime - Iowa group. You're exactly right, we're open to sisters and misters who write, read, review, or publish crime books. For more info on meetings and such, folks can check out our website at
