The Crime Writers’ Association (CWA), of which I am a member, has created the role of Festival Liaison Officer, which is intended to strengthen connections between crime writers and literary and arts festivals. Authors Isabelle Grey and William Shaw will share the role.

I think that this an excellent initiative. As Martin says, festivals are a terrific way of connecting writers with readers. You can find out more at
