From April 19-23, ProWritingAid is holding Crime Writer’s Week – a time dedicated to all writers fascinated with the genre. Whether you have written, are writing, or are thinking of writing anything in the crime genre, you will want to participate in this event.
The event is FREE, with live sessions led by bestselling authors such as Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner, Ian Rankin, Peter James, and Fiona Cummins.
Crime Writer’s Week is jam-packed with events for crime authors. Get insider publishing advice from Katherine Armstrong, the Deputy Publishing Director for Crime Fiction at Simon & Schuster, attend workshops on writing and editing your novel, and learn from real police advisors to help make your book truly authentic.
As a Crime Writer’s Week participant, you get access to:
- Training, workshops, and Q&As specifically curated for crime writers
- Daily networking events where you can meet other like-minded writers
- A dedicated closed Facebook group, just for Crime Writer’s Week participants
Learn the basics of crime writing from sessions like The Elements of a Crime Novel: From Planning to Plot. Dig a little deeper with The History & the Mystery: Selecting and Creating an Authentic Setting for Crime Fiction.
All sessions from Monday to Thursday are free, with Friday open for members.
Sign up once (for free) and gain access to all sessions. If you can’t attend them all, no worries. They will be made available after they go live.
