There are two ways authors and creatives can participate in Capital Crime:

Appear on a Panel at Capital Crime
Panels are arranged by invitation. Our programme is planned around themes that will interest and entertain fans and we select authors and guests best suited to explore the subject matter. We aim to feature a good range of authors from debuts to best-sellers.

In line with the Society of Authors guidelines, if you’re invited to be part of a Capital Crime panel either as a guest or a moderator, the festival will pay an appearance fee. Capital Crime will also provide one night’s accommodation for authors who live outside the M25.

Capital Crime Digital Festival
We will be choosing up to 70 authors to be part of the Capital Crime Digital Festival. Authors will be selected from those who have purchased passes for Capital Crime and attend the event. Selected authors will be interviewed at Capital Crime, either solo or as part of a panel, and the video will be hosted at capitalcrime.digital

We’ve engaged a Televisual Top 50 production company to produce the interviews to broadcast quality, giving authors a polished, powerful marketing platform. Participating authors will be given a profile page with a bio, links to their website and purchase links for their books, all of which can be updated.  Their interview will be featured on their bio page and will be rotated on the Capital Crime Digital homepage for a year. The Capital Crime Digital Festival is a year-round, permanent opportunity to engage with fans and reach new readers.

If you’d like to be considered for a panel at Capital Crime or the digital festival, please contact us.

Capital Crime operates a policy of inclusivity and does not discriminate on any basis. We aim to have balanced social representation across the festival.
