The Crime Writers’ Association

Buxton International Festival – Sarah Ward & Friends

Sarah Ward and Friends, with Elly Griffiths and William Shaw

Sarah Ward is a Derbyshire-based crime writer whose detective DC Connie Childs solves crimes within
the Peak National Park. Why are the best crime novels reliant on a defined sense of place almost as if ‘place’ is a character in itself? Sarah Ward ‘guests edits’ this event and has invited fellow crime writers Elly Griffiths (Norfolk) and William Shaw (Dungeness) to discuss landscape, crime and developing their fictional characters.
