Sisters in Crime Australia’s 15th Annual Davitt Awards Long List – Adult Novels

Sisters in Crime Australia Inc

Celebrating Women’s Crime Writing Since 1991

The Plot:  To celebrate women’s crime writing on the page and screen and bring a collective critical eye to the field. 

Launched at the Feminist Book Festival in Melbourne in September 1991, Sisters in Crime in Australia was inspired by the American organisation of the same name, which was founded in 1986 by Sara Paretsky (creator of Chicago PI VI Warshawski) and other women crime writers at the Bouchercon crime convention.

The Motive:  To share our collective passion for women’s crime writing.”
