Crime & Thrillers Weekend
3 - 5 May 2019
Please download and complete a Booking Form in Word or pdf and email or post it back to us with your payment.
A weekend of talks, book signings, Q&A sessions, writing workshops, food & drink, writing competition and Movie Night entertainment! Join us in the picturesque, coastal village of Cromarty for a weekend to remember.
With guest authors, actors and experts...see below for individual events.
A reminder - you can book individual elements of the event OR make a weekend of it and go for the Residential Package - a fantastic way to mingle with like-minded people and soak up everything that our rather special town of Cromarty has to offer.
As part of this year's Crime & Thrillers Weekend, we're launching a brand new short story writing competition, open to all. The genre is - obviously - crime and thrillers and the compulsory story title is 'The One Hundred Steps' (after the beautiful and legendary Cromarty walk up the South Sutor). Make of that what you will! There are two categories: under 18 (1000 words) and 18+ years (2000 words) and the deadline for submissions is midnight on 7th April. Entries will be judged anonymously with a winner and runner-up in both categories and prizes awarded by Ian Rankin at our end of weekend session on Sunday 5th May.
For full details, terms and conditions and an entry form, download here in Word or as a pdf.
This is a great opportunity to try your hand at crafting a short story in a genre that gives plenty of scope to let your imagination run wild! Good luck!
