Murder comes to Malahide

Murder comes to Malahide on the October bank holiday weekend in the form of the Something Wicked Crime Writing Festival.

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.

Malahide Murder Morning

This year’s Malahide Murder Morning takes place in the Malahide Parish Pastoral Centre on Saturday, October 28th. Over a number of interesting workshops and presentations our speakers will deal with the topical issues of cyber-crime, psychopathy and forensic anthropology. We’ll be making further announcements in the coming weeks.
