Part of the ethos of Crime Cymru is to support and raise awareness of Welsh crime writers and their work. To do this we are holding Crime Close Ups before our panels where our Crime Cymru members can introduce themselves and read a sample of their work. To find out who’s doing what, see the Speakers page (they’re at the bottom).  We hope you tune in and find your next favourite author.
