The Crime Writer’s Association, an organization for professional crime writers in the U.K. has a new website for their fans – Crime Readers Association. The site will feature author interviews, publishing news, writer events, and offers a free newsletter for crime readers.
From CWA Chair Peter James: “We’re very excited about launching this new initiative. The idea behind the CRA is to bring readers and writers closer together. The CRA will create a bond between fans and writers and promote further the crime writing genre.
“In an age when crime writing is so popular it made sense to find a way of helping writers and readers connect. Authors could not survive without readers and the CRA acknowledges the fact and celebrates the role of the reader in the burgeoning success of the genre. The CWA has showcased members’ events and books on our website for several years now– we see the CRA is an extension of this and we hope it will help our members to grow their careers.”
