The Crime Writers’ Association

Want to Get Involved?

Host an event

If you’re a library or bookseller or other venue – or maybe organiser of a literature festival in June – and would like suggestions on how to set up an event or are looking for an author for an event as part of National Crime Reading Month, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us and we’ll do what we can to help.


Ask for writer participants

If you’re hosting an event and need authors to participate, we can help you do that. CWA members are the cream of crime, mystery and thriller writers – both fiction and non-fiction. If you let us know the type of writer you are looking for, or if you already have someone in mind, we’ll help find the right authors for you.


Ask us to publicise your event

The CRA and CWA have a strong social media presence as well as a mailing list of around 12,000 readers who would love to hear about crime-writing events. Especially if you’re featuring CWA members, we’d love to help get the word out there – just let us know details of the event in good time.


Help us promote Crime Reading Month

We need your help to spread the word about National Crime Reading Month. Help us promote this great initiative by downloading our promotional poster and putting it up in your library, bookshop or workplace.
