The Crime Writers' Association

Dea Parkin

Dea Parkin, Secretary of the CWA, has been an Associate Member since 2012 and owns and manages editorial consultancy Fiction Feedback.

Fiction Feedback was established in 2008 and provides top quality structural and copy-editing. We also provide constructive critiques on novels and short stories. Writers can choose one to three independent critiques.

Fiction Feedback has helped authors across diverse genres, including crime, to publish their books. Occasionally we’ve helped secure publishing deals for the very best writers, and we also help traditionally published authors with their next work. For 2020, we have introduced a bespoke book marketing course, one-to-one via Zoom or a similar platform, tailored to the individual’s marketing needs and aspirations.

Dea is also a writer and poet.
