The Something Wicked Crime Writing Festival takes place in the seaside village of Malahide, Co. Dublin, every October Bank Holiday Weekend.
Now in its fourth year, the festival provides an interesting mix of author interviews, panel discussions and book signings. Notable authors who have attended include Arne Dahl, Liz Nugent, Louise Phillips, Alex Barclay, Arlene Hunt, Sam Blake and Shane Hegarty among others.
The festival is also noted for the topical forensic workshops that make up the Malahide Murder Morning. These workshops provide writers with very useful information about procedural and forensics aspects of crime, which they can use for their own novels. This year our speakers will address the topical issues such as cyber crime, psychopathy, and forensic anthropology.
