Members of The Crime Writers’ Association (CWA) voted with an 84% majority to allow self-published authors to join the association's ranks for the first time in its 68-year history.

Full story in today's Bookseller.

According to Bookseller, Maxim Jakubowski, chair of the CWA, said: “... In the past, we only accepted traditionally published authors into the CWA, as this was the best indicator of quality. The publishing landscape has changed in recent years, and self-publishing has become a route for professional writers... The time is right to update our membership criteria.”

Self-published authors wishing to join the CWA must demonstrate “a level of professionalism through a simple-to-complete application form" which will be on the CWA website from September 13, when the association will first accept applications.
