ThrillerFest, CraftFest, Master CraftFest Now Open For Registration

19 Sep




Your ThrillerFest team is already hard at work planning for next July’s conference where we’ll feature 2016 ThrillerMaster Heather Graham and bestselling author C.J. Box.  The other spotlights and this year’s Silver Bullet will be announced shortly—like a compelling page-turner, we need to keep you in suspense, so stay tuned for more details.

Master CraftFest: Don’t miss this opportunity to study with the Masters of the genre in a one-day intensive workshop to take your writing to the next level.  Everyone is welcome, from beginner writers to well-established authors.  The instructors this year will be Steve Berry, Grant Blackwood, Gayle, Lynds, David Corbett, Meg Gardiner, Heather Graham, and Andrew Gross.

CraftFest:  Director D.P. Lyle M.D. is already recruiting talented teachers to broaden your knowledge about the craft of writing as well as experts in fields like forensics and firearms so you can get the facts right in your novel.

ThrillerFest:  We’re planning some phenomenal panels, always trying to innovate and entertain.  Join us for the spotlight interviews, cocktail parties, workshops, and fabulous networking opportunities.  Please check the volunteer box during registration, as it’s a great way to make new friends and help out ITW.

We’re going to have a table at Bouchercon in Raleigh this year, so if you’re an ITW author and would like to help meet and greet people, please email Kimberley at

In the meantime, take advantage of the discounted prices of early bird registration and sign up today.  Looking forward to another memorable year!

    Ladies, Gentlemen — According to your website, I am already three years too late to register for ThrillerFest 2016.

    Please tell me that I’m wrong and that the reghistration deadline is not July, 2012!

      Obviously an error—thanks for catching it. It will be corrected. And you are NOT too late.
