Virtual ThrillerFest XVI • June 28 – July 10, 2021 • Now Online!

X-Treme CraftFest

We are pairing up some of the best thriller professionals in the world to discuss a SPECIFIC ASPECT of the craft (setting, dialogue, conflict, opening sentences, etc.) of writing in brand new videos. Our mission has always been to provide attendees with the tools they need to take their writing to the next level and to help authors reach their career goals. For over fifteen years now, we have worked to fulfill this vision. And year after year, we are thrilled by the many success stories sitting on the dais of our Debut Author Breakfast.

Join us for over 100 conversations featuring over 200 industry professionals discussing craft and the business of writing. You’ll be able to access these dynamic videos in a private showcase using Vimeo, accessible until the start of ThrillerFest XVII – 2022, so you’ll have plenty of time to absorb this great information. Learn from the best to hone your writing. New videos will be released each business day during the two weeks of the conference starting at 8:00 am on Monday, June 28, 2021.
