The Crime Writers’ Association

Published authors

The support we provide to our author members is the most direct way in which we support crime writing. By helping hundreds of writers to promote their work, and to gain awareness and sometimes acclaim for it, we make a positive difference to individual careers and raise the profile of crime writing in our literary culture.

The CWA works hard to promote crime writing as a genre and support crime writers to promote their work.

We do this by various means.
