More Crime for CWA
26.08.10 | Katie Allen
The Crime Writers' Association (CWA) is to repeat this year's inaugural National Crime Fiction Week, and Young Crime Writers' Competition in 2011.
National Crime Fiction Week will be renamed National Crime Writing Week to reflect an increased emphasis on non-fiction as well as fiction. It will take place between 13th and 19th June 2011.
The competition, which culminates at the festival, will run from 10th–18th February 2010, and be run in association with library authorities, with members of the CWA judging the stories.
Last year's competition attracted 600 entries nationwide.
CWA chair Tom Harper said: "We were delighted with the way both initiatives went. Our idea was to raise the profile of crime writing with all age groups and the success of both the dedicated crime writing week and the competition achieved just that.
"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."
