Crime Fiction Fix is a digital subscription-only magazine for writers and readers of crime fiction. It’s been running since August 2015 when it was founded by editor Sarah Williams – author of How to Write Crime Fiction (Little, Brown 2015).

Each month’s issue features exclusive content including video interviews with bestselling authors, top tips from criminology experts, opportunities for new writers to showcase their work, and regular articles including:

  • Book reviews:  Free-to-view book reviews on the latest crime fiction reads.
  • Members Showcase: An opportunity for magazine subscribers to showcase their work to fellow Crime Fiction Fix
  • The Back Story: Well-known crime writers give an in-depth commentary on specific passages of their writing.
  • Conference Report:  On the ground reports from key crime events and festivals .
  • Events round-up: Listings of the key must-attend events in the crime fiction calendar.

Editor Sarah Williams told us more about the magazine and how it came about :“The idea for Crime Fiction Fix crystallised on a drive down the M4 on the way back from CrimeFest in Bristol a couple of years ago. I love crime fiction conventions and conferences. They bring together three of my abiding passions – learning about the craft of writing, talking to crime writers and finding out about new authors. I didn’t want it to end. And so I conceived the idea of a monthly online crime writing magazine providing bite-sized chunks of insights and information, together with a video interview with an established crime fiction writer, talking about their writing – a magazine that would be of use to writers and of interest to readers.

Crime Fiction Fix has now been running for just over a year, and an exhausting and exciting year it has been. We have a highly gifted and committed editorial team, some amazing techies, but above all we have been struck by the extraordinary generosity of crime fiction writers, ready to share their time, advice and experience, of the technical experts who provide invaluable guidance on all aspects of crime fighting and of the publishers who have kept us informed about new authors and forthcoming publications.

Our aim above all is to be illuminating, exciting, informative and supportive, providing access to the understanding and insights of established mystery writers and a platform for new crime fiction writers to showcase their work, all in the context of an ongoing conversation about the craft of crime fiction writing.

It’s a great privilege and enormous fun.
