The Crime Writers’ Association

Supporting literary festivals and organisations

We welcome approaches from crime-writing festivals asking us to get involved.

We’re very happy to suggest crime writers who might participate in your festival and put you in touch. We will then promote the specific event and the festival at large via our marketing platforms: on our CWA and CRA websites and social media platforms and, if we have sufficient notice, through our monthly CRA Newsletter which is distributed to 12,000 readers and counting.

We also maintain a list of the main UK-based crime-writing festivals which we share with anyone interested. If you’d like your festival adding to this list, and have participating CWA author members, we will be glad to do so.
