|Festivale thanks the Melbourne Sisters in Crime for allowing us to reprint the text from their presentation.
Active in most states of Australia, Sisters in Crime is an organisation of writers, would-be writers and readers who meet to discuss the crime/mystery genre and the real life equivalent. The guest speaker at the Melbourne meeting is real-life Private Investigator Elizabeth Wilde (see Events for details).
Male members (if you'll excuse the expression) are welcome, and are known as Brothers-in-Law.
