Welcome to the Arctic Cliffhangers website. We are the Alaska Chapter of Sisters in Crime, an international organization with 48 chapters worldwide dedicated to the professional development and advancement of women crime writers.

The Arctic Cliffhangers’ mission is to advance education and literacy in Anchorage and across the state of Alaska by the encouragement, facilitation, and promotion of literature and the arts, with an emphasis on the reading and writing of crime fiction written by women.

Sisters in Crime (SinC) is an international organization founded in 1986 to promote the professional development and advancement of women writing crime fiction. Today, SinC is made up of more than 3,000 members in 48 chapters worldwide — authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers, librarians, and others who love mysteries. This year, we’re celebrating 25 years of opening doors to strengthen the voice of women in the mystery field. We hope you’ll join us. SinC into a great mystery!
