Award winning crime writer Martyn Waites was our first ever Quay Words digital writer-in-residence in June and July.

In residence over lockdown, Martyn’s aim was to bring people together and inspire them to share their love and reading and writer in digital spaces. This was achieved in his History of Crime Writing talk, which you can watch here and through the Quay Words Locked Door Mystery – an online whodunit hosted on Slack.

Martyn will join us in celebrating the Locked Door Mystery writers, nine talented writers who have all solved his mystery in a short story, on Wednesday 5th August on Crowdcast. Register for your place here.
