Welcome to the Florida Chapter of Mystery Writers of America. FMWA is an organization of published and aspiring authors, booksellers, readers, and other industry professionals pursuing a career or interest in the crime fiction genre.

Our Monthly Meetings feature dynamic speakers and networking opportunities with fellow authors, reviewers, and booksellers. We invite experts to keep us up to date on forensic topics, while other sessions might focus on writing craft or marketing skills.

SleuthFest is our annual conference. This four-day event includes bestselling authors as keynote speakers, editors and agents, booksignings, an on-site bookstore, raffles and more. SleuthFest has garnered a reputation as one of the premier mystery writers’ conferences in the country.

We’re excited to announce SleuthFest 2015 will take place February 26-March 1 in South Florida! To register or for more details, please visit http://www.sleuthfest.com.
