ThrillerFest XVII • May 31 – June 4, 2022 • Register Today!


A word from Doug Lyle about CraftFest 2013:

CraftFest is shaping up to be another fantastic two days of learning from some of the best in the business. And since we try to keep CraftFest evolving and improving, we have a very special Bonus Session planned for all attendees on Wednesday morning: three hours with Steve Berry and John Sandford revealing the nuts and bolts of crafting your next thriller. Doesn’t get much better than that.

But then it does.

Who else is teaching? Michael Connelly, T. Jefferson Parker, Michael Palmer, Gayle Lynds, David Morrell, Catherine Coulter, JT Ellison, Heather Graham, Lorenzo Carcaterra, Doug Preston, Lincoln Child and of course Kathleen Antrim and Jon Land reprising their outstanding class on the all important “What If?,” to name a few. And many more gifted instructors to come.

So, if you haven’t signed up yet, do. It will be two days that will kick your writing into high gear.

If you have attended CraftFest before, you know how valuable it is. If not, join us and see first hand how your writing and storytelling skills will reach a new level of professionalism.

This is what the 2012 CraftFest Schedule looked like.

Hope to see you in NY.
