The Crime Writers' Association

Dea Parkin

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

Fiction Feedback was established in 2008 and provides constructive critiques on novels and short stories from professional editors, authors, writing specialists and literary agents. Writers choose one to four independent crtitiques on a sliding scale of reasonable fees.

Renowned for both structural and copy-editing, 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. As well as debut writers, authors who have been traditionally published and are now turning to self-publishing are using Fiction Feedback as a professional, top quality editing source.

Dea is also a writer and poet.
