Grit and Crime–The Art of Writing Noir: Panel DIscussion
October 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Noir is a subgenre of crime literature featuring cynical characters and bleak settings. Dark in theme and subject matter, noir often features systemic corruption and a disturbing mixture of sex and violence. It is frequently associated with hard-boiled detective fiction, but they’re not exactly the same. Panelists will discuss the similarities and differences between noir and hard-boiled fiction, and what inspired them to write in these genres. Panelists will read excerpts from their stories in “Hard-Boiled and Loaded with Sin,” the latest crime noir anthology from Hawkshaw Press.
Featured authors: Albert Tucher, Dianna Sinovic, Suzanne Mattaboni, and Phil Giunta
