National Crime Writing Month is a UK wide annual reading festival promoting the crime genre and starts on the 1st June.

It is a major initiative, coordinated by the CWA, a non-profit group dedicated to the promotion of the genre and to support professional writers, and the Crime Readers’ Association with the help of volunteers and in partnership with many organisations in the UK.

Every year libraries, bookstores and literary venues across the country work with authors and members of the CWA to put on a programme of talks, book displays, book signings and events giving readers the opportunity to explore the latest and best crime writing, as well as to discover (or rediscover) many classic writers.
