ThrillerFest XIII

We have a fabulous line-up of special guests this year, including:

  • 2018 ThrillerMaster George R.R. Martin
  • 2018 Silver Bullet Award recipient James Rollins
  • 2017 ThrillerMaster Lee Child
  • 2017 Silver Bullet Award recipient Lisa Gardner

Other special guests will be announced soon. We have something for everyone, whether you’re an aspiring author, a fan, an industry professional, or an ITW author. Some of the highlights include:

  • Master CraftFest: An extraordinary opportunity for writers and authors to meet and learn from the best in the industry in a full day of teaching and review of sample writing on Tuesday.
  • CraftFest: A host of industry experts or phenomenal teachers helping writers and authors improve their craft or assist in advancing their careers in classroom-type settings of hour-long sessions throughout the day Wednesday and Thursday morning.
  • PitchFest: An incredible opportunity for writers to pitch their manuscripts to as many of the best agents, producers, and editors in the industry as they want on Thursday afternoon. (Note: Registration for PitchFest is an additional cost to either CraftFest, Master CraftFest, or ThrillerFest and cannot be purchased as a stand-alone event for writers.)
  • ThrillerFest: A wonderful opportunity to meet the most successful and bestselling thriller authors in the world, starting with the Opening Night Cocktail Party on Thursday evening, and continuing with panels, interviews, and autograph sessions on Friday and Saturday.
  • The Thriller Awards Banquet, which is an added feature on the registration options, provides attendees a chance to see authors recognized by their peers for their work on Saturday night, the closing event. This is an amazing experience for both the readers and authors and should not be missed.

Volunteers are an integral part of the ThrillerFest experience. We couldn’t do it without you. If you would like to assist us, please send an email to registrar@thrillerwriters.org. Volunteering is a great way to meet people and get involved in ITW.

We look forward to seeing you next July in NYC!
