Teaching News, and Ten Mistakes all Crime Writers should Avoid

On  Friday 19 May, I will be guest novelist tutor on the Professional Writing Academy Secrets of Writing Successful Crime Fiction workshop, which is being held in Bristol as part of Crimefest.

Led by Tom Bromley, a fellow tutor at the Faber Academy Online, this practical workshop is for aspiring crime writers seeking to unlock the secrets of successful crime fiction and start developing original ideas. Through close readings of key texts and writers, practical writing exercises and guided discussion with the tutor guest author, this course will give you a grounding in some of the core elements that make crime fiction work. It will also discuss the process of getting published and how to take your work forwards once completed.

The workshop is part of the Crimefest Crime Writing Day, which also includes sessions on How To Self Publish In eBook And Print with Joanna Penn, and Agents And Editors — Who Does What For Authors?, which is being led by an agent and an editor. Tickets are still available, so book now!
