Killer Women Week - Day 5: Crime Writing Festival

It's Day 5 of my Killer Women Crime Writing Festival Feature Week

And today, it's ALL about the Killer Women Crime Writing Festival. 

Crime fiction fans are being spoilt this autumn with London's first-ever crime festival, thanks to the Killer Women Collective. 

When and where?
The FIRST EVER Killer Women Crime Writing Festival takes place on Saturday 15th October 2016 (9 am to 8.30 pm) at Shoreditch Town Hall, 380 Old Street, London EC1V 9LT.

Founded in 2014, Killer Women is a collective of female crime writers from London and the South East. As well as the Killer Women themselves, other high-profile authors taking part in the Festival include Ann Cleeves, Martina Cole, Mark Billingham and Val McDermid.

What's going on?
The day-long programme will feature:

  • a variety of readings and debates, ranging from Victoria Crime to modern forensic psychology to How to Solve A Murder with real-life detectives
  • how to pitch a novel with advice from commissioning editor Sam Eades and literary agent Nelle Andrews
  • Fresh Blood panel, with four debut authors talking about their books, how they got published and how they're getting on with their second novels - chaired by Sarah Hilary
