Great review of the panels at Newcastle Noir ( including Nordic authors)
I am so excited to be at Newcastle Noir. I’ve never been before and this year the programme is exceptional. The North East’s own crime writing festival has moved venues this year and is being held in the very central City Library. The facilities and the access are really good and it has the benefit of sending a signal of being a Festival that anyone can attend.
The fact that a number of people dropped in today to attend a session is a hopeful sign that this signal is being heard both loudly and clearly.
I got to Newcastle just after 2pm which meant that I had already missed two cracking sessions, but I was still able to attend a further 4 today.
First off was New Kid in Town, with Adam Peacock, Christoffer Petersen, GB Abson and Alison Belsham. These four relatively new authors discussed their writing journeys.
