The Public Safety Writers Association

July 16, 2013

I don't much like Las Vegas, but I went anyhow because I hate to miss the annual conference of the Public Safety Writers Association. They are a warm and welcoming group of cops, fire fighters, FBI agents and crime writers. We get together to share tips on the craft of writing, the agony of promotion, and the real scoop on operational and tactical issues from folks who have been there. First responders live in a culture of story-telling. If you've got a story that won't let you sleep, this is the organization for you.
