The truth about crime

From University Centre Telford

True Crime is a cross-media genre that is increasing in popularity on an annual basis. With roots in the likes of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and some publications further back still, it appears this grizzly genre is something that has attracted audiences for nearing a century – despite any moral ambiguities around the works’ contents. Here, Dr Charley Barnes, Lecturer in Creative and Professional Writing from University of Wolverhampton will discuss the (in)accuracies of the True Crime genre to consider how the “truth” is represented to a reader, and whether consumers need to be made more aware of the fictions behind their favourite criminal facts.
