Welcome to the Thrillerfest V Blog!

We hope you'll bookmark us, just as you bookmark so many of the hundreds of the International Thriller Writers that participate in our annual conference, held in New York City in July.

ITW is a youthful organization, always ready for a new way of looking at things. You'll find that dynamism here, in blog posts from authors, agents, editors and Thrillerfest attendees, past and present.

And that same excitement you feel from your favorite reads is evident in everything ITW does, and no wonder--the organization, staffing and publicity for ThrillerFest--including this new blog--is undertaken by volunteers, most of whom are ITW authors themselves.

So pull up a chair and stay awhile ... discover the latest news on what Thrillerfest V--the fifth anniversary of the conference--has to offer. Visit old friends, make new ones, ask questions, and hear about the remarkable things in store for the conference.

Whether or not you can come see us in New York--and we hope that you can!--please join us here. It's gonna be ... a thriller!

Enhancing Your Experience

Meeting people who are enthusiastic about what you love because they love it too builds a wonderful, positive energy. It’s like going to a movie you’ve been dying to see and the entire audience applauds at the end because the movie was so great. The room is buzzing with that “feel good” energy and it enhances your experience. That’s what it’s like to be at ThrillerFest.

Finding past ThrillerFest attendees that get excited about the upcoming event is very easy. Email any of the authors that are going for a second or third time and ask them if it is worth it. Ask them if they had a good time. Really. Do it! I am that confident that you’re going to get enthusiasm and great feedback from anyone who has attended!

Surrounding yourself with all that great energy, enhancing your experience at ThrillerFest will be a unique and incredible feeling for you that will inspire you to read, write, talk and share everything “thriller”. If you’ve had writer’s block, started to feel a little jaded, can’t seem to find a book that really holds your interest come to New York in July to re-energize and find what you’re looking for at ThrillerFest!
