The Noirwich Crime Writing Festival is the region’s largest annual celebration of crime writing and one of the fastest growing literary festivals in the UK.

Many incredible crime writers have attended the festival in recent years, including Val McDermid, Lee Child, Ian Rankin, Peter James, Anthony Horowitz, Nicci French, Paula Hawkins and Benjamin Black.

Noirwich is about the reading and the writing of crime fiction. We celebrate the genre and explore how it works and where it is going, thanks to our unique connection with the University of East Anglia's creative writing department. Our crime writing workshops provide attendees with the opportunity to enhance their own skills.
