Gold Dagger - (UK) Crime Writer's Association Awards

The Crime Writers Association is a writers' association in the United Kingdom. Founded by John Creasey in 1953, it is currently chaired by Tom Harper and claims 450+ members. Membership is open to any author who has had one crime novel produced by a bona fide publisher (or at the discretion of the committee). It enables writers to contact each other, promotes crime writing with annual awards, and organises social events. It also supports writing groups, festivals and literary events with authors.

The Gold Dagger Award was announced last week.
