It is time to celebrate New Zealand crime writing and the people behind the books we all love so much. The festival will be an outstanding opportunity for members of the public to meet their favourite authors and hear what goes on during the creative process that takes an idea from its inception to the page. ‚ÄčOver three days we will be holding creative writing workshops for aspiring authors, two days of panel discussions featuring crime writers from as far away as Scotland, Iceland and Finland as well as some fantastic one-on-one interviews. ‚ÄčThere will be a short story competition for local writers to show us what they can do with the winner getting to read from their work at the festival. We will be aiming to include the local community of Rotorua as much as possible in what will be a great event for the city.
