Wordplay presents Shetland Noir:

Next summer, Wordplay will return to Mareel with a very special festival for 2023. Shetland Noir will run over 4 days in June, with a programme packed full of internationally known writer events, workshops, panel discussions and outings. We will explore bringing in other elements to the programme, broadening from a literature base to include film, music, live performance, as well as other "noir" related content.
