CrimeFest 2012

From 24-27 May 2012, CrimeFest will celebrate five years as one of the most popular dates in the crime calendar, attracting authors, readers, reviewers, publishers and agents from around the world. This year’s headliners include P.D. James, Lee Child, Jeffery Deaver and Frederick Forsyth. A full programme is here. Author interviews and panels, Pitch an Agent and crime writing workshops – it’s all happening at CrimeFest 2012.

Flashbang is a new crime writing contest, sponsored by CrimeFest, who are providing the first prize of two weekend passes, as well as the second prize of DVD boxed sets of The Killing (plus its new novelisation). Hersilia Press is sponsoring the third prize: four of their Italian crime books. Comma Press is kindly providing five copies of MO: Crimes of Practice to runners up.

As well as terrific prizes, Flashbang is free to enter and gives eight lucky writers the chance to be published on websites read by crime buffs the world over. Check out the menu on the left for details of how to enter and what’s up for grabs, as well as tips from the judges on what they’re after in a winning entry. Deadline is midnight BST Sunday 15 April.
