Mita Kapur:

Mita Kapur is the founder and CEO of Siyahi; India’s leading literary consultancy. She is the brainchild behind various annual literary festivals like Mountain Echoes in Bhutan and Crime Writers Festival in Delhi which came much after her being one of the founding members for the Jaipur Literature Festival. She has her charm with words and has transfigured her thoughts concerning food and the memories it invigorates on to the pages of her first book, The F-Word. Pursuing her memoir of food and its special connection to people, she has edited Chillies and Porridge: Writing Food, an anthology of essays. Her literary expertise can also be seen in newspapers and magazines as a freelance journalist with specialty in travel, food and lifestyle along with development issues.

On the eve of the second edition of the Crime Writers Festival we connected with her to learn more about the fest.

This is the second year The Crime Writers Festival is being produced – how has it evolved since last year?
There has been an inclusion of a terrific range of sub-genres within crime writing. Film screenings have been added as well. Psychological, legal, true crime, financial scams, humour in crime. Another medium we are exploring is crime being reported in magazines as photo fiction.
