HWA presents Highlighting Horror: Crime, Thriller and Chiller Day (24th March 2018)



Saturday 24th March, 10:00am – 6:00pm 

Celebrate the horror/crime genre with the world’s leading dark fiction organisation. Through exclusive interviews, informative panel discussions and expert talks you’ll learn more about crime fiction’s edgier side, how thrillers have become darker, serial killer fiction, whether there’s a place for the supernatural in crime and how authors can benefit from this increasing crossover. Perfect for fans of crime fiction or for those who might want to write it. There will also be opportunities to purchase books and get them signed by your favourite authors, and socialise with many experienced writers, film-makers and publishers.
