Presenter Carmel Shute. Facilitator Tara Mitchell.
For thirty years come September, Sisters in Crime Australia has been celebrating women’s crime writing, running exciting events (mostly in Port Phillip), nurturing authors and having fun. Co-founder Carmel Shute will tell tall tales and true under a grilling from a fellow convenor, Tara Mitchell.
Carmel Shute helped found Sisters in Crime Australia in 1991 and has been a national convenor ever since. She was inspired by the new wave of feminist crime writers, including Sara Paretsky who founded Sisters in Crime in 1986 at Bouchercon, the premier US crime writing convention. Carmel loves the combination of politics, suspense, good writing and fun that women’s crime writing and Sisters in Crime has brought to her life.
Carmel is an historian by trade, has worked as a union organiser at the ABC, and a media officer in local government and the trade union movement. She runs her own PR business Shute the Messenger. In 2016 she was awarded a Ned Kelly Life Time Achievement Award.
