Welcome to Speed City Sisters in Crime
Speed City Sisters in Crime is the Indiana chapter of the world-wide mystery/crime writers' association Sisters in Crime. The Speed City chapter was founded in 2005. Find out more about our organization.
Indiana Playwrights Circle November meeting will be a conversation with four writers from the Speed City Sisters in Crime, Indiana Chapter (Crystal Rhodes, MB Dabney, Lillie Evans, and Janet Williams—thank you, Ramona Henderson, also a member of SCSIC, for suggesting the topic!), in addition to our own Andrew Black, to share some of their experiences and approaches to writing a mystery and how the process might apply to the writing of a mystery play.
People at Indiana Playwrights Circle and in the theatre community at large who are interested in learning more about writing a mystery play should find the discussion revealing and helpful.
We will begin at 4 PM CST / 5 PM EST on Sunday, November 1.

Jon Burroughs as James Whitcomb Riley
Speed City Author Jon Burroughs transformed into James Whitcomb Riley for the Hoosier Poet's annual birthday celebration on Saturday, October 3rd. Burroughs created four original poems for the celebration and did a one man show as Riley talking about the poet's life through anecdotes and poems. The Greenfield Daily Reporter covered the kick-off to the annual event on Saturday, which took place at the Riley Boyhood Home & Museum in Greenfield, Indiana.
This year's festival is simpler and socially-distanced, emphasizing local businesses and the history of Indiana's famed writer.
