Date set for National Crime Writing Week 2011

27th August 2010

The Crime Writers' Association (CWA) has announced that National Crime Writing Week, which enjoyed great success earlier this year, is to be staged again in 2011.

Formerly titled National Crime Fiction Week, the celebration of this popular genre is to run between June 13th and 19th of next year.

The change of title expands the nationwide celebration to encompass factual as well as fictional work.

'Crime Writing Week is an opportunity for writers to arrange events under the umbrella of a week dedicated to celebrating crime books in all their forms. It is an excellent showcase for writers,' said CWA chair Tom Harper.

Writers who featured at this year's event included Absolute Poison author Geraldine Evans, Neil White - best-known for Fallen Idols - and ex-policewoman Karen Campbell, who used experiences from her former career to help create many crime novels, such as After the Fire.

Leigh Russell, author of Road Closed, Cut Short and Nightshift NYC, brought this year's Crime Fiction Week to a close.
