Our goal is to help professional writers advance their careers and to support new writers on the road to publication. We’re a killer group with nearly 300 members from Pensacola to Key West. Murdering by the book can be a lonely life. Our chapter connects us with other authors for support, career guidance, education, and networking. We host meetings and training sessions throughout the year, plus our members participate in major book events and festivals. Also we host SleuthFest, our annual conference that draws bestselling speakers and registrants from across the country.
