SEMWA is the Southeast Regional Chapter of Mystery Writers of America (MWA), the premier organization for mystery and crime writers, professionals allied to the crime-writing field, aspiring crime writers, and folks who just love to read crime fiction. We are dedicated to furthering MWA’s dual mission of promoting recognition and appreciation for the genre and of educating writers about all aspects of the publishing industry, including legislation, industry practices, and the craft of writing.

Our membership covers six states (Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee), which makes chapter-wide in-person meetings challenging. Instead, we offer group discussions and networking through our social media accounts. We also are a Killer Nashville International Writers’ conference sponsor.
