The Crime Readers' Association


28th May 2013

This weekend sees the movers and the shakers, the hip and the happening and everyone in between descending on Bristol for CRIMEFEST.

Billed as “the convention for people who like to read an occasional crime novel as well as for die-hard fanatics” CRIMEFEST is one of the most popular dates in the crime fiction calendar where top crime novelists, readers, editors, publishers and reviewers from around the world celebrate the genre.

The Crime Writers’ Association also holds a reception to announce the Shortlists for several of our Daggers – International Dagger, Non Fiction Dagger, Dagger in the Library, Short Story Dagger, Debut Dagger and the Ellis Peters Historical Dagger – and this will be held on the Friday night. This reception is kindly supported by CRIMEFEST and, as ever the CWA, is very grateful for their continued support.

As well as our Dagger Reception we will also be launching National Crime Writing Month which will see events up and down the country as well as online promotions and giveaways. The first giveaway will be on Monday June 3rd so don’t forget to pop back for more details.
