How is that book coming on? You’ve got the ideas, but how do you weave them into an exciting plot that will have readers turning page after page? How to build characters that inspire trust or terror, and do the research that makes the book convincing. In this workshop, local author and journalist Nick Louth explains the tools and tricks that turn a good story into a great one.

Capturing the Qualities of Crime Writing with Christina James

Friday 18th October

Christina James is known as a crime novelist, author of ‘In The family’ (Nov 2012) and ‘Almost Love’ (Jun 2013).  But she is also Linda Bennett, a director and editor of Salt Publishing.

This half day workshop will consist of short presentations, discussion and some fun tasks to share information on how to use local history in fiction and tips on how to get published.  Although it will take examples from crime writing, it will hold relevance and appeal for writers of all types of fiction.
