This ten-week crime writing course will include an in-depth look at how to write a thriller and what makes a good crime novel. It aims to make your own writing strong, compelling and ready to submit.
Areas covered will include plotting, characterisation and analysis of all the elements that give a book that page-turning quality. It is suitable for both beginners and also those who have already started writing but need some direction.
