Ruth Heholt (Falmouth University), Fiona Peters (Bath Spa University) and Gina Wisker (Brighton University) are editing a special issue of Contemporary Women's Writing Journal (Oxford University Press) on Ruth Rendell who died last year.
The purpose of the issue is to raise the profile of a writer (writing as either Ruth Rendell or Barbara Vine) whose work we feel has been unjustly neglected by scholars and to re-evaluate her importance as a contemporary crime writer.
We are looking for crime writers to informally discuss her work, her impact and her legacy and these discussions will be written up in the journal. This could either be answering questions via email, or participating in a (closed, invite-only) web forum.
If you would like to participate (and it would really help us out if you could!) please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
