National Crime Reading Month

National Crime Reading Month 2022 is over!

Huge thanks to everyone who took part this year. We’ll be back in June 2023, of course – check out how you can get involved, and don’t forget our Find A Writer resource is available all year round if you’re planning an event in the meantime. You can also read about this year’s Daggers award ceremony at the CWA website, complete with photos.


Welcome to National Crime Reading Month!

Run by the Crime Writers’ Association in partnership with national charity The Reading Agency, NCRM is a festival that takes place throughout June across the UK and Ireland, culminating in the prestigious CWA Daggers ceremony at the end of the month. It aims to promote and celebrate crime reading across the genre through exciting events and activities in bookshops, libraries, museums, theatres and online.


All events are the responsibility of their respective organisers.
