Crime Cymru is a Welsh Crime Writing Collective whose authors live in Wales, identify as Welsh, or set their books in Wales. The group aims to support crime writers with a real and present relationship with Wales; to help in the development of new writing talent and to promote Wales, Welsh culture, and Welsh crime writing in particular, to the wider world.
