ThrillerFest XII • July 11 - 15, 2017 • Grand Hyatt • New York City

Today’s FBI: Crime Essentials For Writers

Attend a ThrillerFest Pre-Conference Workshop to make your thrillers authentic! In the full-day seminar FBI 101: Forensic Fest you will hear from FBI experts in DNA and fingerprinting. Held at the Ted Weiss Federal Building in New York City, the workshop is strictly limited in attendance by the FBI (can’t have too many wide-eyed writers traipsing around the building!) and is expected to fill quickly. Last year’s workshop was not only full but overwhelmingly appreciated by the attendees. If you’re researching for your next novel, get the facts straight from the source!

Here are the facts on attendance.

WHEN: Monday, July 10, 2017

WHERE: Ted Weiss Federal Building, 10th Floor Classroom 290 Broadway, New York, New York

COST: $125

HOW: No tablets, laptops, or cell phones will be allowed in the classroom. Please leave your personal electronics behind. If you do bring it with you to the building, please plan to label it, turn it off, and leave it in a box at the lobby.

You can attend the FBI workshop on its own, but why miss all the fun, information, and networking at the rest of the conference? Register today!
