Crimes against nature

The Enterprise Centre, UEA

Focusing on the facts behind the threat of climate change and how they have been used to inspire fascinating crime fiction, our expert panel features Corinne Le Quéré CBE, Royal Society Research Professor of Climate Change Science and Dr Ben Smith, lecturer in creative writing at the University of Plymouth and author of the speculative 'mystery' novel Doggerland. Together they will discuss the threat of nature, the growing popularity of ‘eco-crime’ fiction and how debate around environmental degradation could open up new creative avenues in your writing.

The Noirwich Crime Writing Festival is the region’s largest annual celebration of crime writing and one of the fastest growing literary festivals in the UK. The festival is a co-production by the National Centre for Writing and the University of East Anglia, bringing together our expertise to deliver a celebration of crime writing like no other.
