Last Year's Event

In April 2021 we hosted our first Crime Writers' Week—a week jam-packed with online events for crime authors. The enthusiasm and sheer dedication of the writers who attended was so inspiring and so we are thrilled to be going even bigger this year. Our goal is to bring you 100% closer to finishing and publishing your crime or thriller story.

Last time we had some incredible live sessions with some of the biggest names in crime writing, like Ian Rankin, Karin Slaughter, Peter James, and Lisa Gardner, Q&As with police advisor Graham Bartlett and publishing experts from Simon & Schuster, 10 crime writing workshops, and more.

We had the best time learning from the experts and getting inspired.

And so did attendees:
