Virtual Winter Thrills • January 11th – March 18th, 2021 • Now Online!



CraftFest has become one of the preeminent schools for learning the craft of writing the thriller. Our mission has always been to provide attendees with the tools needed to take their writing to the next level and to help each reach their individual career goals. For over a decade now, we have worked to fulfill this vision.  And year after year, we see the many success stories sitting on the dais of our Debut Author Breakfast.

Next year, 2020, will be the fifteenth anniversary of ThrillerFest and CraftFest. In honor of this occasion, we have some surprises planned.

As always, we will have a schedule packed with many bestselling thriller writers teaching all aspects of the art of the thriller. CraftFest will run all day Wednesday, July 8th and for four hours on the morning of Thursday, July 9th.  Many of your favorite teachers will return and other exceptional authors and teachers will be added as we continue to evolve and innovate.

We look forward to seeing you in New York in July, 2020, for ThrillerFest XV, and, of course, CraftFest!
